Recovery Centers of America's South Elgin outpatient center joins in Random Acts of Kindness Day Feb. 17
Recovery Centers of America outpatient treatment center at RCA Outpatient Center at South Elgin recognizes "Random Acts of Kindness Day" on Thursday, Feb. 17, a day to celebrate and encourage random acts of kindness, distributing "Practice Random Acts of Kindness" pins to the community.
"Kindness makes all of the difference, benefiting both one's physical and mental health," says Karen Wolownik Albert, CEO of RCA at St. Charles & South Elgin. "Acts of kindness offer positive power to support ongoing sobriety and the will to rebuild life in recovery.
"Supporting our community members is everything and the smallest act of kindness can last a lifetime. A simple thank you to a policeman and firefighter, holding the door for a stranger or even giving an unexpected compliment can make a difference. Help spread some kindness in our community," says Tim Kolb, chairman of the board, South Elgin Economic Development Council.
Pick up complimentary pins in South Elgin at Cross Kicks Fitness, 317 Randall Road; Village Squire, 480 Randall Road; Dogtopia, 580 Randall Road; Riverside Pizza & Pub, 456 Redington Drive; and Village Tavern & Grill, 464 Redington Drive.
