[ARCHIVED] City Council to Recognize Acts of Kindness

Twenty years ago, the City of Homestead experienced devastation as Hurricane Andrew swept through hundreds of homes and businesses. Out of that tragedy, the kindness that people showed towards one another and willingness to help strangers overcome this disaster left a lasting impression in Councilwoman Judy Waldman.

Today in Homestead one still sees those who help strangers by volunteering, serving the community or just providing a random act of kindness. Councilwoman Judy Waldman has been honoring those deserving residents for the last ten years. With reason of the 20th Anniversary of Hurricane Andrew she is inviting all residents and business owners to share the stories of those who help and serve the community so they can be recognized at by the Homestead City Council.

Residents and business owners are invited to send emails or letters detailing an act of kindness that has been bestowed on them or someone else by others. The most compelling stories will be read during a City Council meeting and the person involved will be recognized. In past years residents have submitted hundreds of letters with stories of a friend, neighbor, relative, co-worker, teacher, student, strangers or even animals performing an act of kindness or serving the community.

“It is my wish to “pay it forward” by appreciating, acknowledging and celebrating those who show what a simple act of kindness can do to enrich our community,” said Councilwoman Waldman.

Please email the stories to Vice-Mayor Judy Waldman at or drop off or mail your letters to:

Vice-Mayor Judy Waldman
City of Homestead City Hall790 N. Homestead Blvd.
Homestead, FL 33030

Letters will be accepted until 4:30 pm on Wednesday, August 15.
