Heartland Credit Union - INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn. (October 11, 2016) - On Monday, October 10, Heartland Credit Union hosted its second annual HEART (Helping Everyone Achieve Random Kindness Together) Day and participated in a statewide event, called Plus it Forward Day, with 24 other credit unions to spread kindness throughout Minnesota.

On HEART day, Heartland employees spent the afternoon delivering treats and thanks to area police stations and city halls in Inver Grove Heights, Hastings, Lakeville, Rosemount, New Market and New Prague. “Giving back to the communities we serve is an important part of our business philosophy,” said Kathleen Harrington, Heartland President. “On this special day we wanted to take the opportunity to thank those who keep our communities running and safe. It was great to see the smiles a simple thank you brought to their faces.”

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton declared Monday, Oct 10, Plus It Forward Day across the state of Minnesota. In his proclamation, Dayton noted that “Minnesota’s credit unions demonstrate a unique ability to collaborate, cooperate, and leverage their resources and passion to make great things possible”. Together, an estimated 1,200 credit-union volunteers directly assisted nearly 22,000 people in 65 communities statewide.
