CAP COM Cares Foundation Launches Week-long Giving Tour



CAP COM Federal Credit Union along with the CAP COM Cares Foundation will launch its 3rd Annual CAP COM Cares Tour the week of August 13-17, 2018. The program’s initiative aims to “share the care” by performing random acts of kindness throughout local communities – while encouraging others to also give back. More than 50 CAP COM volunteers have prepared 20 surprise visits with the aim of creating a movement across the Capital Region.

Visits will feature a variety of acts of kindness. For example, meals will be prepared, and packages of wish-list items will be delivered to shelters and youth organizations. One afternoon will be devoted to delivering gift cards to credit union member companies and professional organizations. Recipients will be asked to shop for nonprofits of their choice. Complimentary coffee giveaways, meals and deliveries of sweet treats – as well as a surprise ice cream social – will be part of the tour, too. On Monday, August 13, a dozen volunteers will help repaint the interior of the 100 year-old YWCA building in Troy.

The non-profits selected to receive random acts of kindness were chosen by CAP COM employees via a company-wide survey. Employees were asked to consider organizations with the greatest need.

The CAP COM Cares Tour will extend to all 11 CAP COM branches throughout the week. Members who visit the credit union will be randomly selected to receive gift cards to local retailers. More than 200 gift cards will be distributed.

“The CAP COM Cares Tour focuses on our employees giving back, and also aims to create a contagious movement of sharing the care,” noted Amanda Goyer, CAP COM’s Community Relations Manager. “The goal is to deliver lasting experiences for those we encounter, including CAP COM members, foundation partners, and the Capital Region community.”

Members of the community can get involved and track the tour by following CAP COM social media sites and the #CAPCOMCares and #ShareTheCare hashtags. Everyone is encouraged to perform their own random acts of kindness during the week, and share their interactions on those sites, too.
