This October, employees in our Lincoln, Southeast and Northeast Nebraska territories were each given $5.00 with the simple ask to perform a Random Act of Kindness in their community.

Some branches pooled their resources, some added their own treasure to the initial $5.00, and some sought opportunities close to their hearts.

No matter the approach, the impact was over 100 Random Acts of Kindness performed.

The outcomes ranged from:

  • Donating coloring books to the pediatric center
  • Supplying a deserving family with pumpkins and carving kits
  • Creating and distributing care packages to the homeless
  • Delivering baked goods to the local fire station
  • Distributing rolls of quarters at the Laundromat…and so the list continues.

As community stewards, it is with great hope that an impact was made and that a purpose was served.

Care packages are being assembled

Employees at our Lincoln Havelock branch assembled care packages to be distributed at the local homeless shelter.  Content included a hat, Gatorade, hand warmers, and granola bars.
