Summer of Kindness is Back - With Workshops!
Last year, together with Beekman 1802, we completed our first-ever Summer of Kindness program. Throughout the summer, we invited children to "deposit kindness" by submitting their ideas on how they would spread kindness in their communities. A Kindness Crew comprised of Sunmark and Beekman 1802 volunteers then selected submissions and worked with the children to help bring their Kindness Projects to life. We are proud to have fulfilled 8 projects last summer, which included a Kona Ice Truck for Nursing Home Residents, an Ambulance Fund Donation, and Helmets for Kids, to name a few - see them all here.
We are thrilled to bring Summer of Kindness back this year with an added component - Kindness Workshops! During workshops, children will brainstorm how to spread kindness in their homes, communities, and school and complete hands-on Kindness Projects to benefit a local organization in their community.
Join the fun! We're especially excited for this year's Charity Golf Classic as 2022 marks 22 years of golfing for a great cause and we also celebrate Sunmark Credit Union's 85th anniversary! Proceeds from our golf event benefit the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation, helping us donate over $300,000 to a variety of local charities over the years. Here are some ways you can participate:
Golf in the tournament. Get out of the office and join us for a fun packed day! In addition to golf, we'll have food, drinks, raffles, and giveaways! Individuals and foursomes are welcome to register at sunmarkgolf.com.

Volunteers helped Girls Inc. make their dreams come true by painting their fence red and bringing their vision of a "Big Red Hug" "to life.
