In 2019, we launched a new initiative called PayneWest Gives Kindness. Every location was given a budget and paid time to go out into their community and do random acts of kindness. Throughout our footprint, our colleagues responded by purchasing supplies for animal shelters; donating clothes and diapers to family shelters; delivering treats to emergency responders; bringing flowers to senior centers; dropping off hats, gloves and scarves to elementary schools; and even simple things like buying a stranger’s gas or groceries.
There was one goal: bring a little more joy into the world. We’re so proud of all our colleagues’ efforts to spread some kindness around the holidays. After all, kindness is the gift anyone can afford to give.
