Connor Wright of Lynnfield may only be 12 years old, but he’s already making a difference for many kids in Massachusetts with a project meant to spread joy and give back during the hard times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Connor’s Kindness Project (CKP), a nonprofit started by Connor in 2020 amid the pandemic, has a goal to “remind us that there is good in the world even at times when we are faced with conflicts and challenges.”
Sharon Marrama, Connor’s grandmother and CKP’s executive director, said the organization recently expanded its mission to deliver “Kindness Kits” in central Massachusetts, starting with a delivery of 50 such kits to children at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
The goal of the kits is to entertain and comfort kids in difficult situations such as stays in hospitals and shelters.
