Sunmark Credit Union and the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation have joined together with Beekman 1802, a company founded by an act of kindness, to fulfill a common goal of spreading more kindness in the world - starting with our own communities. Our Summer of Kindness project invites children up to age 12 to “deposit kindness” by submitting ideas on how they would spread kindness in their community. A Kindness Crew comprised of members from Sunmark Credit Union and Beekman 1802 work with children throughout the summer to bring Kindness Projects to life. Read more about the launch of Summer of Kindness here.

kids Kindness workshops

We can bring the Kindness Crew to you! Are you a teacher or youth leader who would like to bring kindness into your classroom or organization? This spring, the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation and Beekman 1802 are hosting Kids Kindness Workshops as a part of our Summer of Kindness initiative.
During workshops, children will learn what it means to be kind and how even the smallest act of kindness can leave a positive impact on the world. The Kindness Crew will facilitate a group discussion on the meaning of kindness and help children brainstorm how to spread kindness in their homes, communities, and school. Groups will complete a hands-on Kindness Project to benefit a local organization in their community.
Workshops are tailored to fit various age groups and schedules. If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact Audrey Stone, Community Engagement Program Manager, at audrey.stone@sunmark.org.
