Join the service efforts this weekend and help Fishers’ Department of Public Works spread recycled Christmas tree mulch at Billericay Park from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, January 16. Volunteers can register at PlayFishers.com/Volunteer.

Fishers Kindness Challenge

During this difficult time, it is more important than ever to support one another and give back to our community. For this reason, Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness has launched the 2000 Acts of Kindness Challenge, encouraging residents to complete 2,000 acts of kindness by Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 18.

Residents can submit an Act of Kindness they performed or nominate someone who performed an Act of Kindness using this form. Each Fishers resident age 18 years and older who is nominated will receive a gift card to a local restaurant to thank them for their kindness. 

Be sure to share your act of kindness on social media using #FishersKindness and add it to the form to receive a gift card.
