Barret Traditional Middle School students take part in 'Random of Acts of Kindness'

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Students from Barret Traditional Middle School walked up and down Frankfort Avenue Wednesday handing out goodie bags. They're members of the Random Acts of Kindness club.

They put together treat bags filled with candy, but they didn't stop there.

Some of the "tech" bags also came with ear buds.

The students say they felt like giving to others was a good way start the holiday weekend.

"The holiday season is a very happy time of year, but then there are some people who are hurting and who may need just that one thing that could really brighten up their holiday season, and so we thought we could do that," said Abby Yarberry, a student at Barret. 

Each gift bag has a label that reads: "You've been 'RAK'd" -- as in Random Act of Kindness. They also encouraged people to pass on the kindness.
