City of Kindness

In Mayor Tait's State of the City Address he announced 2013 as Anaheim’s Year of Kindness, a year-long effort to bring more resources and energy to neighborhoods by increasing the number of volunteers in our city. Anaheim recognizes the tremendous benefit of volunteering in our neighborhoods and how an act of kindness can bring people together to build a stronger community.

By partnering with Volunteer Match, Anaheim becomes the 1st municipality to partner with the organization in order to provide a simple online tool to connect residents with nonprofit organizations in and around Anaheim.
