Random Acts of Kindness Ripple through Community: Share your Stories on Patch

Share your holiday giving stories with Patch readers.

The holiday giving season wafts through the air in Shelby Township, much like the scent of fresh brewed coffee at Biggby.

While working from the Biggby Coffee on 21 and Hayes Road, I happened to look up in time to catch an adorable 8-year-old drop several toys into a bin for underprivileged kids. The smile that beamed on her face as she dropped the unwrapped presents into the box could have lit the entire coffee shop for a week.

Julia Weihs' mom told Patch they have been wanting to drop off toys all week and finally got around to it Tuesday. 

"It feels like I am giving something to someone, so they have stuff like I have," said the Collins Elementary School student.

Random acts of kindness like this are in abudance during the holiday season. If you would like to recognize someone for their generousity or kindness, post an announcement on Patch.

Thanks Marina!! Julia was tickled to see the article and when we left the coffee shop last night, she said "well, that was unexpected!"
