Private: Sharing Random Acts of Kindness (RAoK)

Our team members are out & about in the community this week sharing random acts of kindness! We’ll keep adding photos to this blog as they come in from our staff.

Thank you to all the team members who signed up to be a part of this special week to help us spread smiles! Additional thanks to Olivia Pink and Digna Johnson for organizing all the volunteers, locations, and surprises!

Flowers for Nurses

Kathy R. went to Good Samaritans Hospital to deliver a beautiful bouquet of flowers to nurses there! Robert P. went out to Holy Family Hospital to deliver gorgeous flowers for the nurses there! Terry M. also made her way to Morton Hospital to deliver flowers specifically to the first floor nurses station who helped take care of her late mother. The nurses were all very appreciative of the gesture and we are so happy we could deliver some smiles to well deserving nurses!

Free Coffee & Breakfast at Perfecto’s Cafe

Our Marketing Manager, Andrea Manseau, spent a few hours at Perfecto’s Cafe in Andover, MA paying for the orders of people she didn’t know. Even though a few people were skeptical about getting something for FREE with no strings attached, Andrea was able to brighten the day for 20+ people.

Grocery Store Checkout Surprises

Debbee H. and Jen O. paid $200.00 towards a woman’s grocery bill at Market Basket in North Andover and then helped her load her groceries into her car. Zobeida D. and Ivanna C. also paid for groceries at Market Basket in Methuen. The surprised recipient is a veteran and was very happy for this kind gesture!

Rose S. headed out to Market Basket in Bridgewater to help buy peoples’ groceries, as well! She had one older woman claim that “no one had ever done that for her before!” Rose even was able to buy someone’s son’s birthday cake which made the recipient extra happy! Rhonda M. went to the Brockton Market Basket and was able to buy groceries for a man whose wife usually does the shopping so he was thrilled!

Free Dunkin Donuts Coffee & Gift Cards

Emily S. from our Plymouth Branch purchased ten $10 gift cards to hand out at Dunkin Donuts! There was even an encounter where a woman was very hesitant to accept the gift card at first but then explained she moved here recently from NY and claimed “You never get anything free in NY! This is amazing!” Everyone was very grateful!

Vivian M. from our Fairhaven Branch went to Dunkin Donuts and had an amazing encounter when one elderly gentleman said “in my 80 years no one has ever done something like this for me” and gave Vivian a big hug! Such an awesome heartwarming moment!

Free Coffee & Snacks at Cumberland Farms

Theresa and Coral F. went out Monday morning to Cumberland Farms in Bridgewater, MA to help pay for customers’ coffees, snacks and other purchases! Everyone was super appreciative and it sure helped brighten up a lot of peoples’ mornings!

What documents should you consider shredding?  Anything that has a signature, account number, social security number, or medical or legal information that you no longer need to retain. If you’re not sure if you should keep or shred a document, keep it somewhere safe.
