TULSA -- 2 Works for You morning anchors and meteorologists handed out free cups of Topeca coffee in celebration of Random Acts of Kindness Day at the Reasor's location on Brookside.
2 Works for You encouraged the visiting coffee drinkers to "pay it forward" by donating a non-perishable food item in the box as they grabbed their free cup of joe.
And thanks to your kindness, we collected 150 pounds of food, along with $45 in cash. Those donations are equal to approximately 250 meals. And we did that in just two hours!
All of the food and cash will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to help our neighbors in need.
The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation has designated the week of Feb. 12-18 as #RAKWeek claiming, "It’s an opportunity for participants to leave the world better than they found it and inspire others to do the same." The seven-day celebration began in 1995.
Individuals and businesses can register their acts of kindness at www.randomactsof.us.
