Mainstreet Credit Union is celebrating our 70th anniversary this year and we want to extend the celebration through year-end. To celebrate we are kicking off 70 Acts of Kindness! To get things started, the marketing team has planned 7 BIG acts of kindness to help Mainstreet spread positivity throughout the community. The organizations we will be working with include KC Pet Project, Donors Choose, Head Start, Giving the Basics, Advent Health, Harvesters, and the Johnson County Christmas Bureau, and may be subject to change throughout the year.
Let’s pay it forward all year long! #70ActsofKindness
