Dignity Health Inspiring Kindness in Our Community

Local schools and Woodland Healthcare employees participate in The Great Kindness Challenge.

Dignity Health’s national brand campaign, Hello humankindness, engages its workforce and the public in improving the health and wellbeing of our communities through acts of kindness. As part of the campaign, Dignity Health was the presenting sponsor of Kids for Peace, a nonprofit organization, and this year’s Great Kindness Challenge, which inspires students in our community to take on a lifelong commitment to service.

The Great Kindness Challenge took place the week of January 27 - 31, and tasked kids at three local schools, Maxwell, Plainfield and Whitehead Elementary in Woodland, and Dignity Health employees to perform as many acts of kindness as possible, choosing from a checklist of 50 suggestions, like compliment five people, lend a pencil to a classmate, or say good morning to your teacher.

"Woodland Healthcare is proud to partner with and sponsor such a great program in our community" said Kevin Vaziri, Woodland Healthcare President. "We believe in passing on the gift of kindness in everything we do. It’s great to see both kids and employees embracing the program and taking on a lifelong commitment to service and kindness."
