This summer Yum! Brands Foundation partnered with The Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) Project to complete various acts of service in the Louisville, KY community. The ARK project travelled the country this summer during a 10-week tour performing random acts of kindness in various communities, inspired by one simple question: “What would happen if kindness became normal?”

Over a two-day period The Yum! and ARK team performed three acts of random kindness. The first stop was at The Center for Women and Families, an organization that provides services for victims of domestic abuse or sexual assault and offers family therapy in the greater Kentucky area, to help landscape the exterior area of their newly remodeled facility. The team’s second stop was at the Franciscan House Senior Assisted Living Center where they hosted a Senior ‘Citizens’ prom where 80+ seniors attended dancing the night away. The group’s final stop proved to be the most impactful, sorting and packaging over 7,000 meals with Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food-aid organization, helping to feed more than 200 children for a month.
