Home Hardware says it is staying true to its message of “homeowners helping homeowners” by participating in Random Act of Kindness Day this Friday. There are 29 stores in Ontario and British Columbia participating in the event spearheaded by the Community Foundations of Canada.

Random Acts of Kindness Day is an opportunity to encourage members of the community to do nice things for their neighbours, co-workers, friends and family; ultimately resulting in building a stronger, better community for everyone, said a news release from Home Hardware.

“At Home Hardware, we are focused on service in our communities across Canada,” said Terry Davis, CEO, Home Hardware Stores Limited. “Random Acts of Kindness Day is a unique way for us to show our appreciation to our loyal customers.”

Parksville Home Hardware downtown on Morison Avenue and Dolly’s Home Hardware in Qualicum Beach are participating in the event.
