Catholic Charities Adult Day Services clients are seeking to spread kindness by painting rocks and hiding them in the community for others to find and enjoy.
To date, the “Kindness Rocks” project has generated over 150 painted rock creations which have been hidden at seven local parks and landmarks.
Dana Bond, Adult Day Services program director said similar projects sparked her interest and she knew it was a great idea to engage the community and to provide a unique activity for the 100 clients served through the program.
“I saw on social media that many communities were doing ‘rock projects’ like Wichita’s ICTAREROCKS, and thought it would be great for our clients,” she said. “Each rock brings me joy because they are all unique.”
While Bond said clients love painting the rocks, they like hiding them in the community for others to find even more. Adult Day Services has also painted rocks for its own gardens at 5920 W. Central. Bond said anyone in the community is welcome to take or leave a rock, but to please leave one if you take one.
