2019 Kindness Meter Recipients
“We are so grateful to the City of Dawson Creek for choosing the Dawson Creek Arts and Wellness Society to receive funds from the Kindness Meter project. These funds will be used to support children and youth in our community who can’t access arts and wellness programming due to financial barriers. Arts programming is known to increase a child’s sense of well-being and promote good mental health. We know that the residents of Dawson Creek are generous people, and we can’t wait to share that generosity with our local youth. Thank you to those who donate, and to TransCanada for matching those funds!”

Simple Definition of kindness
: the quality or state of being kind
: a kind act
In April of 2016 the City of Dawson Creek, in partnership with TransCanada, launched the Kindness Meter Initiative. The Kindness Meters are made out of refurbished parking meters and are located in four different locations around Dawson Creek: the Kenn Borek Aquatic Centre, the Calvin Kruk Centre, the Memorial Arena, and outside of the Chamber of Commerce. Every year two local community groups who applied to the program (application below) are picked to receive the funds collected over the time period and in turn, TransCanada matches the funds for those groups.
Our two groups receiving the funds for 2019 are the Dawson Creek Arts & Wellness Fund and the Visually Impaired Group of Dawson Creek.
