ROCK Juneau was mentioned in a KTOO Public Media article here!
"The year may have come to an end, but the effort to make Juneau a kinder place will not. ROCK Juneau, a community organization that wants to improve the welfare of children and youth, plans to continue working in the community for the Year of Kindness for Kids in 2018."
ROCK Juneau would like to give a million thanks to the Juneau Police Department for their hard work and contributions during the 2017 Year of Kindness! They have done a lot of good for our community throughout the last year while encouraging and inspiring others along the way. At their ending event, ROCK Juneau announced that we will be coordinating a Year of Kindness for Kids in 2018. We will be highlighting successes and addressing needs in our community that influence our young people. Keep an eye out her on our website, as well as our social media pages for more information! Cheers to 2018!
