Ways To Give Back This Holiday Season
The end-of-year holiday season is a time when many reflect on their own good fortune and decide to help others in need. This year, North Loop businesses and non-profits are offering a variety of ways to contribute. We’ll update this list as we learn of more.
Sip ‘N Bloom
The first-ever Sip ‘N Bloom tree farm on the North Loop Galley patio is a benefit for Masonic Children’s Hospital. The trees, priced from $65-210, are now being sold on the honor system. If you find one you like, there’s a QR code on the tag which will let you pay on the spot and walk away with your tree.
You’ll find a collection bin from the group Gifts For Seniors inside Bricksworth Beer. They’re asking for new, unwrapped clothing, household items and/or recreational items such as games, puzzles and coloring books. The items will be personally delivered to seniors who are isolated this holiday season.
You can drop off donations of toys until December 19th at Filigree Jewelers’ shop on North 2nd Street.
In partnership with Faribault Mill, Fulton Beer is donating a portion of the sales of its new Winter Warmer Ale to provide warm blankets to YouthLink, a North Loop non-profit providing services to teenagers experiencing homelessness.
Sharing and Caring Hands
Donations of food, clothing, household items and toys are being collected for the less fortunate by Sharing and Caring Hands on 7th Street, down the street from Target Field.
With their drive-up entrance off North 4th Street, the Salvation Army makes it easy to donate toys, clothing, household goods and other items.
Modist and Guacaya Bistreaux
Earlier this month, Guacaya Bistreaux, Konjo Baked Goods and Modist Brewing teamed up for The Inaugural Modist Affair, a benefit for Avivo, which provides services in the North Loop for those experiencing homelessness.
