Acts of Random Kindness (“ARK”) Mission Statement

ARK’s Mandate: to package toiletries, dignity, and hope for men, women and children in need.

ARK was created on February 20th 2016 over a cup of coffee and a bowl of chili when founding members, Kristy N. Fleming and her mother-in-law, Heather A. Fraser, were warming up after participating in the Coldest Night of the Year walkathon.

For one night a year, the streets are bustling with positive energy and solidarity for those who call it home. But what about the other 364 days of the year?

Since then, through the generosity of community donations and support, hundreds of ARK Bags have been distributed to local shelters and people’s vehicles to be passed out on the streets of Simcoe County.

ARK Bags are waterproof freezer bags that contain: a water bottle, snack, a pair of socks, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, Q-tips, toothbrush, toothpaste, face wipes, a razor, deodorant, list of community resources, a personalized handwritten note of encouragement, and other small donations.

ARK is an entirely not-for-profit organization that is in the process of applying for charitable status. ARK operates solely on donations and the service of volunteers.

If you would like to be a part of this enriching venture, through donating, volunteering, or other means, please contact us using the information listed below.

Yours in respect and community service,

Kristy N. Fleming
