Affinity Plus Announces Second Annual Plus It Forward Day

On Oct. 13, the credit union will make a difference in local communities by spreading kindness.

ST. PAUL, Minn.--()--Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union announces its second annual Plus It Forward Day on Monday, October 13, 2014, where members and employees will perform acts of kindness in communities they serve.

“Plus It Forward Day is going to be a great day for Affinity Plus. In the true cooperative spirit, we will be improving the lives of people who live and work in the communities we serve”

The credit union’s goal is to show it is possible to make a significant difference in the lives of others through simple, intentional acts of kindness.

“Plus It Forward Day is going to be a great day for Affinity Plus. In the true cooperative spirit, we will be improving the lives of people who live and work in the communities we serve,” states Dave Larson, president and CEO. “With our members and employees, we’re going to go out and scatter kindness in a variety of ways with the goal of inspiring those around us to do the same.”

Branches and departments will Plus It Forward in a variety of ways, such as volunteering at the Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity and Feed My Starving Children, delivering flowers to nursing home residents, partnering with local elementary schools to show appreciation for public servants, donating blood and performing random acts of compassion around various communities.

Recipients of a Plus It Forward act are encouraged to share their story on the Plus It Forward website, launched earlier this year. The website serves as an archive where viewers can read and share stories about spreading charitable actions. “You’ve Been Challenged” cards have also been designed with a unique code on them so that as people give or receive a Plus It Forward, they can reference the code to demonstrate the ripple effect one act of kindness can have.
