About Gilbert Kindness
The Town of Gilbert launched the Gilbert Kindness campaign in May 2017 as a way to celebrate kindness throughout the community. This initiative is focused on celebrating all of the thoughtful things citizens are already doing for each other while also encouraging the community to go out and do something kind for a friend, family member, neighbor, coworker, or even someone they have never met before. Here is one of many #GilbertKindness Stories we've shared so far:
Meet Mase and Logan. Mase is a firefighter with Gilbert Fire and Rescue and Logan is a 12-year-old boy who loves Star Wars and Iron Man. While the two differ in age, they share a special bond because of one similar life experience. Watch to find out how acts of kindness changed both of their lives.
