#KinectaKindness is an extension of Kinecta’s Random Acts of Kindness Week, which takes place every February. During the week, Kinecta employees receive gift cards from Kinecta, which they use to surprise neighbors and community partners with acts of goodwill.
“Our employees were so excited to give back in surprising ways during Random Acts of Kindness Week that we decided to expand our support with a weekly #KinectaKindness program,” said Kinecta’s Manager of Community Engagement Latrice McGlothin. “Everyone knows someone who goes above and beyond to care for others. With #KinectaKindness, we hope to further encourage volunteerism, selflessness, and kindness in our communities.”
Kinecta Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Manhattan Beach, is one of the nation's largest credit unions. It has offered banking services in the South Bay for 80 years.
