SECU Maryland kicks off month-long campaign to spread kindness

| October 19, 2020, 10:29 AM

SECU, Marylands largest state chartered credit union, announced that it has kicked off a month-long fundraising campaign to spread kindness, raise funds to support the SECU MD Foundation, and do good in the community. The SECU KindnessU campaign will engage SECUs employees, members and partners, as well as the greater community, with a goal of raising a minimum of $75,000 for the SECU MD Foundation, performing 3,000 acts of kindness in one day, and inspiring others to do the same throughout the month of October.

The KindnessU campaign launched internally to employees and SECU members on October 1,  and has already raised more than $14,000 for the SECU MD Foundation. The campaign kicked off publicly today with SECUs Day of Kindness,” which started with all SECU employees receiving Kindness Kits to facilitate performing simple acts of kindness. The kits, which are also available to the public, contain supplies for activities that can be done at home or in the community, such as Kindness Cards” to leave on a strangers windshield, sidewalk chalk and rocks to decorate and spread positive messages in the neighborhood, and postcards to send to friends, family or those in need of an uplifting message.

We hope our employees, partnersand membersindividual acts of kindness will inspire a ripple effect, far greater than the acts themselves.”
