Onalaska student starts ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ club

An Onalaska Middle School student is hoping to spread kindness one act at a time.

Sixth grader Matthew Krueger started a ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ club earlier this year with the goal of doing small things that make a big difference.

A group of about 40 students are involved in the club and have already done things like create ‘appreciation stations’ for kids who may be having a tough time at school or at home.

“We brainstormed lots of ideas of things that were kind that we could do for people around the school or in the community. It’s unsuspected, no one can tell when it’s going to happen and then randomly, a random act of kindness will be done for someone,” said Onalaska 6th grader Matthew Krueger. 

The Random Acts of Kindness club eventually hopes to branch out from the school to also do service projects in the community.
