November is Kindness Month in the Snoqualmie Valley.
The annual celebration is hosted by Carnation nonprofit Empower Youth Network (EYN). It comes with several events and campaigns aimed at promoting a more compassionate community and raising awareness for EYN’s Youth Suicide Prevention Program and #BeKindSV campaign.
The month is supported by the Riverview and Snoqualmie Valley School Districts, Snoqualmie Tribe and the five Valley communities.
Here’s a list of scheduled events and activities.
