We understand that even the smallest act of kindness can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors and even for people all around the world. In an effort to spread some joy right here in our own community, we recently launched our own version of random acts of kindness, called Small Acts That Give Back. Read below to learn about we have done so far. Who knows, we could be in your neighborhood next!

Small Acts That Give Back

Small Act That Gives Back – Hometown Hero

In May, we gave community members the opportunity to nominate someone they know who goes above and beyond for other people. We received so many wonderful nominations, and we enjoyed learning all about the amazing things so many of our neighbors do to pay it forward each day. Congratulations to our four Hometown Heroes, Andrea Connelly, Phil Lemire, Peter Moore and Midge Landry! Thank you for all you do to spread kindness throughout our communities.

Small Acts That Give Back – Pay Your Heating Bill Campaign

This winter was certainly a tough one, which caused heating expenses to be higher than normal. In an effort to assist our members with their overwhelming heating costs, we held our Small Acts That Give Back – Pay Your Heating Bill Campaign. Throughout the month of March, members wrote to us and explained why they needed help with their heating costs from this past winter. We were thrilled to help four of our members pay their oil, propane, gas or electric bill. We hope this Small Act helped alleviate some of the financial burden this winter has caused.

On March 6th, we celebrated National Oreo Cookie Day! We delivered packs of delicious Oreos to our employees, and even surprised members by handing out the sweet treats in our branches. Nothing like a Small Act That Gives Back that also tastes yummy!

We recently surprised shoppers at Market Basket on Fletcher Street in Lowell with Market Basket gift cards and a free tote bag. We certainly enjoyed seeing the smiles on our community members’ faces as they received a little gift to help with their grocery shopping.

Our Small Acts That Give Back continued into the weekend, this time at Muffins on Main in Westford. Customers received a special surprise as they placed their order, and were inspired to pay it forward to other customers waiting in line. Visitors at Muffins on Main left motivated to extend their own community support to organizations in their neighborhoods.
