Random Act of Kindness Day sponsored by Jules Hope Chest

On Tuesday July 9th Jules Hope Chest declared the day Kindness Day and in memory of Joseph Silva his daughter Julie and wife Judy decided the perfect way to celebrate his birthday and to honor and remember him this year was to execute a Random Act of Kindness day. On day that should have been his 69th birthday they launched a plan to celebrate by giving over 300 children in their hometown of East Providence a gift of kindness. We had a team of volunteers that broke into groups and distributed kindness gifts at the four playgrounds (Pierce Memorial Field, Onna Moniz-John/Central Park, George Lima/Hull Street Park & Providence Street Park) location that all served free lunches this summer to the youth in our community.

Jules Hope Chest is a non-profit organization that was established to provide the extra hope and enhancement of items and programs that are truly essentials of childhood. They are the items that are easily cut from budgets but we are making them our priority to allow children to just be kids and not have to worry about the needs and essentials for their childhood. We are committed to helping the most vulnerable at need children in the state of Rhode Island by providing opportunities and resources that they may otherwise not experience.

"It all started with a vision that built off my father's legacy. It's been a whirlwind but completely and utterly amazing to be able to help so many at risk children, families in need, organizations and communities in our beautiful state. This was the perfect way to celebrate his birthday because he was doing random acts of kindness before it was the popular thing to do." stated by Julie Silva, Founder/CEO

We were proud to spread kindness throughout the city and every child that received a gift agreed to do an act of kindness to pay it forward. It is heartwarming to know that the youth who received a gift from our organization was excited to pay it forward to others. The children are our future and it will be brightened with kindness and hope. We are committed to instilling hope while enhancing the lives of children...one child at a time.
