Kindness Club

Welcome to our website!

Please check out our blog to learn more about the fun activities and projects that our club is a part of!

When it comes to kindness, we all know that words and actions make a difference. This is the primary focus of the Kindness Club, formed as a part of Jemtegaard Middle School’s Club 8 afterschool activities.

Our focus is about sharing kindness with others by creating small gift boxes filled with creative trinkets and uplifting notes. We use our creativity to bring a smile to others in our community that might be struggling or could use a happy surprise.

The club has made Kindness Boxes for Jemtegaard students, Clark County’s Teen Talk program, and the Salvation Army of Washougal to add to their food bags. It is important that kids realize how much power their words and actions have on others. They have the ability to change someone’s day and outlook, simply by being kind!

Since the Covid outbreak, the club now meets via ZOOM each Wednesday. During that time, they chat about the creative works they have been doing and discuss the kindness project of the week. This website has been created for members, or anyone who wants to be included, that describes the club goals and project videos that can be done at home.

The last couple of months have been a challenge for many; coping with illness, social distancing, online school, etc. The Kindness Club has been a great outlet for the kids that want to continue to make a positive difference in their community and to focus on the good. That is the big take-away with this club; if you look for the good in something, you will find it. And it just might look a bit different than you expected!
