Today, Gate City Bank, together with Hornbacher’s, surprised thirteen lucky grocery shoppers in celebration of National Random Acts of Kindness Day. Throughout the morning, Gate City Bank team members paid each lucky shopper’s grocery bill.
“Random acts of kindness come in all shapes and sizes,” said David Wrolstad, Gate City Bank, Fargo Regional Leader. “It can be something as unexpected as buying groceries for someone or simply holding the door for another person as they enter. The important thing is that we look for ways to make someone else’s life better.”
National Random Acts of Kindness Day embodies Gate City Bank’s philosophy of supporting communities through positively impacting those around us. In 2016, Gate City Bank team members completed over 700 acts of kindness, with a total of $1.8 million in charitable giving.
“It is very sweet, makes you realize when you get good things you need to pass it on.” said Jill Machayya. “We will pass that on today too.”
