Kind kids: Genesee Elementary group memorializes lost friend, tries to spread kindness
AUBURN | What do dogs, golf and hospice care have in common?
At Genesee Elementary School, they're connected by kindness.
The Kids With Pride, a character education leadership group of fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders at the school, is launching its fourth big service project, and the theme this year is kindness.
The group has learned about Sunshine Friends, an organization that brings therapy dogs to people who need a little sunshine.
"Some therapy dogs go to hospitals and they make the people that are sick feel better and be happy," said fifth-grader Arianna Baker, a member of Kids With Pride.
