September is Hunger Action Month (HAM) which means it’s time to “go orange” to raise awareness for the 1 in 10 Minnesota households affected by hunger. As of September 1, each Affinity Plus branch location will be getting out its best orange outfits and setting up Food and Fund Drives benefiting Second Harvest Heartland, an Affinity Plus Charity of Choice. Can’t make it in to a branch? That’s ok – our virtual branch allows employees and members a like to donate money or pick out items to donate from our online shop!
