Did you know that studies show that as humans we are constituted so that simple acts of kindness have a positive effect on our long-term moods? But the impact of that kindness reaches far beyond, rather, it can exponentially effect an entire community and the individuals that make up that community. With that in mind, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get messy…again! For the past five years individuals and establishments throughout the Nevada County community have come together to regenerate and preserve the beauty that defines the splendor of our historical community and at the same time, touch lives by demonstrating to our friends and neighbors what community is all about!
On October 5, 2019 hundreds of Nevada County individuals and organizations will serve its citizens through Anew Day’s community-based sixth annual Random Acts of Kindness Event (RAKE). From highway clean-up and park landscaping to school revitalization and trail restoration, we will work together to clean and refresh our community’s streets and neighborhoods.
We have lined up all the resources necessary to produce this third annual community-wide clean up day. Well-known local personalities from the Nevada County region have volunteered their time and energies to lead a group of individuals as they clean local roadways and parks. Spanning from the south end of the County to Nevada City, approximately 20 locations have been identified for community clean-up on the day of the event. Approximately 20 people per project location will sign-up to volunteer under the direction of a designated “team leader.” We will provide the necessary supplies, including safety vests, gloves, trash grabbers and other necessary equipment.
We’re seeking members of the community to join us in our efforts. To participate in the RAKE event and help maintain the beauty for which our community is known, please visit www.therakeevent.com or call Anew day at 530-470-9111. This is a cost-free community event and registration includes a RAKE t-shirt.
All proceeds go to support Anew Day and the cost-free services it offers to the community. Anew Day works to provide a safe environment which enables its clients to face life’s ups and downs. Partnering with their clients, Anew Day counselors folks where they are and with whatever struggle they are facing. Anew Day’s goal is to provide answers, hope, direction, and skills for coping with today’s pain as well as tomorrow’s struggles.
We look forward to your participation!
