Random Acts of Kindness
We started a #KindnessRevolution in Arizona by surprising members of our community in unexpected ways!LEARN MORE
Featured Act of Kindness:
Finding a Fur-Ever Family
Some sweet furry friends at the Arizona Humane Society Sunnyslope Campus will be going home for free after we sponsored their adoption fees! In honor of the 15 educators who founded Desert Financial 80 years ago, 15 pet adoption fees were waived to help these loving animals find their fur-ever homes. Our team received a tour of the campus and hand-picked which animals could be adopted at no cost. A diverse bunch of youngsters and seniors were chosen from both the dog kennels and cat sanctuary! Their adoption sponsorship status was noted with a Random Acts of Kindness sticker, aligning to our mission of spreading kindness and sharing success throughout the Valley. In addition to covering the adoption fees, we also made a donation to support the Arizona Humane Society’s on-site animal hospital, all totaling $5,000. We hope the wonderful animals there also get to find their purr-fect family!

Teacher Appreciation Event Spotlight:
Spotlighting Student Achievements
Our friends at Harris Elementary School really wanted a way to show off their spectacular students’ work. To help make this happen, our Gilbert branch purchased bulletin boards for each teacher to hang outside of their classroom. This way, the educators can post exceptional work or even spotlight a student for everyone at the school to see! Teachers were so appreciative that we were able to assist them in recognizing children. In addition to this gift, the educators were treated to a delicious lunch as we celebrated all they do for their school. We hope this helps their students feel pride when their work is recognized.

Fighting Food Insecurity
When a student has to worry about where their next meal is going to come from, it can be difficult to focus on other aspects of their life, including valuable education. Because of this, team members at our Kierland and Scottsdale Safeway branches teamed up with Valley of the Sun United Way to assemble Weekend Snackpacks! Each pack included nutritional brain-food, such as granola bars and packaged proteins, and was decorated with words of encouragement for the recipient. The Snackpacks were then distributed at schools and shelters across the Valley in areas where food insecurity is high. We hope these children get the nutrition they need so they can focus on their goals for the future!
