Do a Good Deed in Your Community!

Join Rochester on Sunday, March 15 as the city participates in Good Deeds Day. Good Deeds Day is an international event with over 500,000 participants in 50-plus countries paying it forward through good deeds both large and small on this day. For Rochester’s Good Deed, we are collecting new toys and books for The Birthday Room at the Clothes Closet, a program of the Rochester Area Neighborhood House. Every book and toy donated will go to a child who might otherwise not receive a birthday gift.

GOOD DEEDS DAY FLYERRochester’s Good Deeds Day will be held at the Rochester Fire Department, 277 E. Second Street, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The day will also include kids activities, Child ID Kits, tours of the newly renovated Fire Station and the opportunity for kids to put their handprint on the wall at the Fire Station.

“Rochester is such a generous community, I know Good Deeds Day will be a huge success and we are so happy to be able to help The Clothes Closet’s Birthday Room,” stated Rochester City Manager Jaymes Vettraino. “The event is also a great opportunity for the community to get a sneak peek at the new Fire Station. I encourage everyone to come and lend-a-hand with a donation and all the kids to lend a hand(print) on the Fire Station wall.”

The press release stated that items needed include character dolls, remote control toys, building sets, doctor kits, science kits, nail polish, arts & crafts kits, sports equipment and much more. Don’t have time to purchase a new toy or book? Just bring your recyclable cans and bottles to the Fire Station on Good Deeds Day and we’ll do the shopping for you!
