City of Alexandria Wooden Nickels

Because of YOU, we are better!

Stop in to City Hall today to pick up a nickel or two to give out to someone of your choosing.

They should be given out:

  • As a special thank you to a neighbor, co-worker or stranger
  • They are to acknowledge an act of kindness
  • They are to create awareness to community strength and giving
  • When giving them away, ask that the recipient “pay it forward” to the next kind person
  • No age limit
  • Ultimately, the circles these nickels will travel are a path of encouragement, support and community support with kindness
    • We often don’t know what others are going through, a small act of kindness can sometimes make all the difference in the world.
