Affinity Plus branches across Minnesota work to spread kindness

MOORHEAD — A Minnesota-based credit union is working to make a positive impact on the community.

Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union workers carried out random acts of kindness throughout the state Monday, Oct. 14, for the company's annual "Plus it Forward" event. The group went out to help serve lunch to guests at the Churches United homeless shelter in Moorhead.

Jon Stock, the branch manager for Moorhead's branch, said he's impressed with how big of an impact a small gesture can have.

"Sometimes people just need a little bright part of their day, so to get out of the office and go out and do those kinds of things, it means a lot," Stock said. "The people like it, but it really touches our heart as well."

This is the eighth year the credit union has "plussed" it forward, with Moorhead's branch being only one of over 20 other branches that participated.
