PECI's Random Acts Of Kindness Nominee

The Violence Awareness and Random Acts of Kindness (VARAK) Program began in 1997 in remembrance of Mark Fyke and in recognition of all victims of violence, especially Becky Middleton and Shawn Keegan.  With the help of many, our program has expanded to the communities of Quinte West, Prince Edward County and Stittsville. During our kindness week we promote an awareness of the prevalence of violence in our society and how to counteract the negative effects from it.
