I got a fun phone call Wednesday afternoon from Zak Branham, manager at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union (900 4th St NW #102, Faribault) Zak told me that Affinity is going to be raising money for the St. Vincent DePaul Society here in Faribault, but they need the community's help! The Credit Union is calling it the Affinity Plus Snowman Challenge!

Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union wants you to show them your snowman on their Facebook page. It's easy to do, simply add your picture of a snowman to Affinity Plus' Facebook page in the comments section of the post asking for your photos, beginning Friday, February 7. Each photo in the comment section of that post will result in a $25 donation to St. Vincent DePaul Society here in Faribault.

Affinity Plus members can even pick up a snowman kit complete with carrots, donated by HyVee in Faribault, at the local branch, during regular banking hours. Members of Affinity Plus's staff may also be out in the community this weekend handing out the snowman kits too.

The inspiration behind the snowman challenge idea came from the FariboFrosty itself.

Building a snowman this weekend shouldn't be hard to create with the expected snow. So get out there and start building snowmen, taking a pic, and sharing it to the Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union Facebook Page, in the comment section of the post asking for your snowman pics. You could help raise up to $5,000 for Faribault's St. Vincent DePaul Society! You can find their Facebook page here. 

And since you've already taken that photo of your snowman, you can share it with us by sending it to us using our FREE app!
