Residents may have gone to sleep in Gilbert last night, but they woke up in Kindness USA.
The town’s one-week rebranding begins April 22 and will run until April 28.
Town Council approved the change in January, and the U.S. Postal Service has approved the use of Kindness USA for addresses in the town.
Furthermore, typing Kindness USA into a Google Maps search will drop a pin right on Gilbert’s Municipal I building, home of Town Council meetings.
The town also has opened up its social media channels to stories of kindness in town, encouraging users to use #GilbertKindness to mark those posts. The town will give away prizes to random people who participate.
The town has a schedule of other free events going on through the week. 480-503-6000. www.gilbertaz.gov
