Okotoks Stronger Together

There are so many great local examples of Okotokians being neighbourly, supporting and caring for one another in our community. Let's continue to contribute to the power of community and volunteerism by performing big and small acts of kindness because Okotoks is stronger together.

Kindness Days

The third Friday of every month is Kindness Day, a chance to spread the kindness that makes Okotoks a great place. On Kindness Day, we will showcase Kindness Currency nominees and we have different options that make it easy to get involved in and sign up for any or all the Okotoks Stronger Together programs.

Celebrating Kindness Day July 16: Okotoks is Giving!
This Kindness Day, Friday, July 16, sign up to give someone a boost and Gift It Forward or register to be a Community Champion, and the Town will drop your free gift bags or fun-filled toolkit at your door! You can also nominate someone for Kindness Currency: get a sticker for your nominee and one to pass on because Okotoks is GIVING!  

Kindness Currency

Recognize the inspiring acts of kindness happening in our community with Kindness Currency! When you nominate someone and share the stories of the people making Okotoks stronger and more resilient, your nominee will get a Kindness Currency sticker for themselves and one to pass on. Kindness Currency recipients and their stories will be shared with the community and have the chance to be featured in a monthly video.
