How We Started

Connor’s Kindness Project was founded during the Covid Pandemic by Connor Wright of Lynnfield, when he was 12 years old.  It was a challenging time for a lot of children  and Connor wanted to give back and help even in small ways.

So, Connor along with his nana, Sharon Marrama, started creating Covid Care Packages filled with activities and comfort items and delivered them to children in their community that were sick or in isolation from Covid.

From there, Connor and Sharon worked on a few other projects including compiling self-care baskets for the healthcare workers at Boston area hospitals, held a clothing and essentials drive to benefit another nonprofit, Catie’s Closet and collaborated with Birthday Wishes to build and delivered 42 “birthday-in-a-box” for children in shelters. 

These experiences morphed into ideas about how CKP could execute their own mission and the Kindness Kit was born becoming CKP’s initial signature initiative. It was shortly thereafter that CKP became a MA nonprofit business and a 501 (c)(3).
