There’s a very important piece in our Strategic Plan called our “Why We Exist” statement which is, “Affinity Plus – where a group of thoughtful, inspired people are committed to changing the world, one person at time.”
On Tuesday, April 2, our Solutions team volunteered with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) in Eagan. They spent their afternoon packing more than 16,000 meals which will help feed 46 children for an entire year. Reflecting on their work, John Simonsen, Solutions Manager, said, “Though the overall number of bags we packed was impressive, slowing down for a day and truly thinking about those less fortunate was something that that opened eyes for all of us. It was truly an honor to be a part of something bigger, yet also knowing that every day when we come to work being a part of something bigger is right in front of us!”
Feed My Starving Children is a nonprofit that works to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by enlisting the help of compassionate volunteers. Since its inception in 1994, FMSC has packaged more than 600 million meals for children in need.
Every day, we strive to change the world by developing relationships with you and helping you manage your money, or giving you opportunities to participate with us to help change lives for people in Minnesota. Thank you for inspiring us to do more for you and challenging us to always find ways to help more people in our communities.
