Sunmark Commences Third Annual Summer of Kindness with KIPP Schools

The Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation’s annual Summer of Kindness officially returned on Tuesday, May 23. Kindness Crew volunteers, comprised of Sunmark Credit Union staff and Sunmark Foundation members, joined KIPP Capital Region Public Schools at Krank Park in Albany as they celebrated their School Spirit week.

Fourth grade students from three KIPP schools (Albany Community Charter, Troy Prep, and Tech Valley) previously participated in Sunmark Kindness Workshops earlier this year where they learned what it means to be kind and brainstormed ideas on how to spread kindness in their communities.
