As our members and communities face unique challenges due to COVID-19, food shelves across Minnesota are seeing their clients’ needs triple. And to help, we partner with Second Harvest Heartland.

Our relationship with Second Harvest Heartland is year-round, but we recently donated $10,000 for the increased need in our communities. And we’ll also help the organization with marketing to increase awareness and additional funding. All of it will support food distribution, access to SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and more resources that help feed our neighbors during these unprecedented times.

Protecting Your Information Security
As companies take extra measures now to protect their employees and consumers, cybercriminals are taking advantage of the heightened concern. But there are simple ways to protect yourself, and it starts with awareness.
Things to Watch For
The Affinity Plus Information Security team is partnering with others in the industry to closely track fraud attempts and threats. And we wanted to share some trends we’re seeing.
- Malicious websites and spam emails containing an interactive dashboard of Coronavirus infections and deaths produced by Johns Hopkins UniversityTransfer funds.
- Emails claiming to have the most up-to-date information on the COVID-19 status. The links in these emails are not safe. Emails asking for donations related to the virus.
- But you have the power to protect yourself from these and other fraudulent attempts.
Easy Ways to Protect Yourself
Though fraudsters can be extremely convincing when they contact you, you’ll have the upper hand if you follow these simple tips.
Be suspicious of links. Instead of clicking on links in emails, try to go directly to the source’s website on your own.
Don’t even open emails from unfamiliar senders. Instead, just delete them.
Don’t respond to unfamiliar texts. Whether the sender is unfamiliar, or the message just seems unusual, just delete it without responding.
Don’t provide any personal information. If someone calls you and asks for private info like your birthday, Social Security, login credentials, etc., just hang up. Legitimate companies and organizations won’t do that.
Already clicked on something?
Change your password. If you’re worried about something you clicked on, or personal info you gave out, it’s a good idea to change your password for the related site (if there is one).
We’re Here for You
