has found itself at the center of The Kindness Rocks Project
, a growing cultural phenomenon in which small rocks (fist-size or smaller) are painted with short, inspirational quotes. The project made its way to Crittenden County, Ken., and Rogers Group jumped at the chance to get involved.
The company’s Crittenden County Quarry donated rocks to local businesses in town, and those rocks can now be seen painted and placed in public areas, such as parks, sidewalks, and parking lots, etc. all over the county. And now, a teacher at Crittenden County Middle School has asked Rogers Group to partner with the school by donating a rock for every student for an activity on the first day of school.
“Of course! It’s great to know we will be a part of the students first day of school this year,” says Amanda Dossett, Rogers Group sales representative, in a press release.
“This was a fortunate intersection of opportunities for us — working with local schools, helping to inspire children’s creativity, playing a part in encouraging random passers-by — all from donating a few buckets of rocks,” says Tom Kenley, Rogers Group communications specialist. “We just could not pass it up!”
