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. 

Next Kindness Day is September 16

Surprise someone with a random act of kindness this Kindness Day. Sign up for Gift It Forward and you'll receive up to four FREE bags filled with awesome swag that you can deliver to someone in Okotoks to show them you care, say thanks, or just to boost their mood!

Sign up by 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 15 and we’ll drop off the freebies on your door step the next day.

Gift It Forward encourages Okotokians to surprise someone with a free gift bag as a way show them you care, say thanks, or just to boost their mood! This is also a fun and easy way to reach out to someone who may need a reminder that they are not alone. 

Submit a request for Gift It Forward bags through the link below. You can request up to four free gift bags to pass along. Your gift bag(s) will be dropped off on your doorstep on Kindness day (3rd Friday of each month).
