Maricopa Random Acts of Kindness wants to hear your stories, big and small.

The City of Maricopa announced a new program to celebrate good-deed-doers, thanks to the generosity of the founder of Nikola Motor Company.

The Maricopa Random Acts of Kindness program encourages residents to share good deeds they have witnessed. Those who share their stories may receive a gift card. Nikola Executive Director Trevor Milton is donating personal money to communities to help those who have been helping those in need.

Maricopa is receiving $30,000. Of that, $10,000 goes to Maricopa Community Foundation, $10,000 goes to the food bank, and $10,000 goes to Maricopa Random Acts of Kindness.

“We are so very thankful for Mr. Milton for selecting our community as one to so generously invest in,” said Mayor Christian Price. “This donation is structured to help businesses, residents and recognize the tight knit community that makes all of us so thankful to live in the City of Maricopa.”

If you are a recipient or contributor of kind act, email your story of a random act of kindness in 100 words or less (with a photo if possible) to

The City will then share selected stories on social media. Story contributors will be randomly selected to receive a gift card to a local restaurant. Submissions are open until the funds run out.

Nikola is currently hiring for its future plant in Pinal County.
