Sunmark Foundation Partners with Beekman 1802 for a Summer of Kindness
Sunmark Credit Union and the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation have partnered with Beekman 1802, a company founded by an act of kindness, to celebrate the “Summer of Kindness."
Starting in May and running all summer, children up to age 12 are invited to “deposit kindness” by submitting their ideas on how they would spread kindness where they live. A Kindness Crew – comprised of Sunmark Credit Union and Beekman 1802 employees, and Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation volunteers – will review all submissions and select ideas to become Kindness Projects. These projects will be fulfilled throughout the summer, with the Kindness Crew working together with the child who submits the form to bring their ideas to life and spread kindness in their community.
