When a donut meant more

He asked for his change in fives and tens and then spotting the box of donuts on the counter behind the teller, Aaron laughed, “I’d also like a donut to go, please!”  To Aaron’s surprise, though, along with his receipt and cash, he got a glazed cake donut wrapped up neatly in a paper napkin.

But that’s not where this story ends.

You see, later that day, Aaron came back with a card for our tellers, thanking them for their kindness that morning. Life had been tough lately...really tough. And that pastry? Well, to him it was more than just a donut. It was a reminder that there are still people in the world that genuinely care, and that sometimes, a simple act of kindness can make the biggest difference.

That’s why at Emprise, we don't figure out if we can make a difference but how we will make a difference.
