Woburn Kindness Day (#WoburnCares)

Join us for Woburn’s first city-wide Kindness Day. Working with our partners we have put together a schedule of events to make it easy for you to do an extra kindness.

You can volunteer, make a donation, show extra gratitude, or simply make someone smile. However, you make this day special, share with us using #WoburnCares. Together we can make kindness contagious.
