Choice Financial is partnering with The Salvation Army to create awareness for hunger and homelessness in the Fargo-Moorhead Area. As part of their Random Acts Of Kindness Program that promotes "willingly sharing for the betterment of the communities in which they live," Choice Financial employees slept in boxes and gathered food and monetary donations for a pasta feed at The Salvation Army. The kick-off event was held Nov. 8 and 9, when the employees slept in their boses at Choice Financials, 4501 23rd Ave. S. location.

Donations can also be delivered to Choice Financial at: 4501 23rd Avenue South, Fargo; 210 Sheyenne Street, West Fargo from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Nov. 15.

Previous Random Acts of Kindness have included: purchased tickets to a local high school play and handing them out for free to community members at the door; the Grand Forks Supras Squirt hockey team donating an hour of their practice time to help refugee kids learn how to skate and, with the help of Choice Financial, skates were purchased for the kids; in conjunction with a fitness club, offering free childcare on Black Friday so parents could shop 'worry free;' picking up the tab for a single mother's grocery purchase; assisting in a Habitat for Humanity build; taking donuts and coffee to people standing in line at a labor office waiting to hear of any jobs for the day; and delivering cold bottled water on a hot summer day to parents watching their kids practice at a local ball park
