Golden Valley Group Is Spreading Kindness and Warmth To People Less Fortunate
A Golden Valley woman is spreading joy and warmth to people less fortunate.
Michelle Christensen and her army of volunteers are preparing for their upcoming annual scarf bombing event, when volunteers collect and distribute winter gear and other necessities to people in need. This week, volunteers sorted and bagged items for the event. One of the bedrooms at Christensen’s home is stuffed with bags containing donated hats, gloves, coats, and scarves. So far, they’ve collected more than 33,000 items.
“I think it’s very surprising to a lot of people to know that there are many people in need that don’t necessarily look like they’re in need, but they’re in need,” said One Good Deed Founder Michelle Christensen.
It’s the fifth year for the scarf bombing event. Christensen started One Good Deed after the first year, and volunteers with the group spread joy and kindness by doing community projects once a month. Christensen says it’s all about showing compassion and care.
The scarf bombing event takes place on January 8th and Loring and Kellogg parks from 11:00 a.m. until 2 p.m. If you want to volunteer, drop off donations or learn more about this event, visit the group’s Facebook page.
