When asked about this Random Act of Kindness Appleyard commented, “I was touched by the appreciation the recipients showed. Everyone was very happy and shocked to have GLCU pay for their movie tickets. We actually had one movie-goer tell us that we sponsor her soccer team and another patron offered to buy us popcorn as her random act of kindness to us. As a new Manager, it is a great experience to be able to give back to our community like this.”
