We love random acts of kindness day but this year we thought, why just a day? Why not make it even better? So for the month of February we are doing Random Acts of Kindness Month! This means every single day of the month we will be donating to a local charity or non-profit in each of our branch locations. Giving back to the communities we are a part of is something we love doing and will continue to do as long as we can!
