  •  The Norman, OK Police Department pulled people over to share gift cards instead of tickets!
 

2021

In 2021, First United Bank in Dallas had a goal to complete 10,000 acts of kindness in one day and the city of Dallas proclaimed February 17, 2021, as “United Acts of Kindness Day.” Several other First United bank locations joined in to help reach this goal.

 
 

Despite the lack of power and water during the ice and snowstorms of 2021, terrible road conditions, shortages on grocery items, etc. we still came together to help our communities in a time of need. While some of the events may not have happened as planned, we all still seized the weather storms as an opportunity to spread even more kindness. From putting together and delivering care packages, donating food and bottled water to those without water and power, calling to check in on the safety of our older customers, helping pull cars out of ditches, opening their homes to others for a shower or warmth, and so much more.
