Hi! I’m Glory Thomas, the founder of Orem Kindness Week.

Here in Orem, Mayor Richard Brunst and the City Council believes that even a teenager can make a difference. When I presented the idea of a city-wide Kindness Week they loved it and thought it would be especially important with all that is going on in the world.

My hope is that Orem can be the city to lead out in this and eventually we will have a statewide Kindness Week. Please join us this year for Orem Kindness Week, Nov. 12th – 19th and help continue the culture of kindness in Orem.

Nominate a Person, School, Nieghborhood, or Business for a Kindness Award

"PB&G" - The Kindness Cause

Our Kindness Cause this year we will be collecting socks, winter gloves, and peanut butter for RSVP. You can drop items off in the Orem City Center. Please encourage your neighborhoods, schools, and businesses to donate to this great cause. The more we gather the more families we can help here in Orem and across the world. Thanks for having a kind frame of mind and giving from the heart! Orem is a great place to live.
