You’ve seen our #RandomActsofVerve team boosting spirits around town by paying for customers purchases and surprising workers with a gift or word of encouragement.

You’ve seen our #RandomActsofVerve team boosting spirits around town by paying for customers purchases and surprising workers with a gift or word of encouragement. In November and December, we brought #RandomActsofVerve back into the branch, where our team members brought smiles to visitors’ faces with a special pass or coupon.

Helping Bring the Holidays to Life at Nutcracker in the Castle

Over the past several years, Verve has been the lead sponsor of the Paine Art Center and Gardens’ Nutcracker in the Castle. This November, we had the opportunity to spread holiday spirit in the community by giving away 125 pairs of tickets for self-guided tours of this heartwarming, immersive experience.

Giving the Gift of a Squeaky-Clean Car

In December, 63 lucky branch visitors headed to the car wash, courtesy of Verve! With the holidays in full swing, there seemed like no better time for an unexpected gesture of kindness. We hope this sudsy gift inspired community members to “pay it forward” this season with their own #RandomActofVerve.

Because Community is one of our guiding 7 Cooperative Principles, Verve loves lifting community members’ spirits through unique (and sometimes surprising) efforts. Performing Random Acts of Verve is just one way our team members help create a strong community built on kindness.
