Happy holiday season from the MN Hunger Initiative partner organizations.
1. Sponsor a Thanksgiving dinner for a family in the Twin Cities
Every $60 sponsors a Thanksgiving dinner for a family living with a life-threatening illness through Open Arms. Donate or join the Turkey Drive and make Thanksgiving joyful for neighbors in need.
2. Attend The Walk to End Hunger
The Walk to End Hunger is a family-friendly fun walk presented by The Mosaic Company. Held on Thanksgiving Morning in the Mall of America, it’s a great way to start your holiday off right – giving back before you give thanks!
Each year more than 5,000 walkers join together in the fight against hunger. Be a Hero – Walk to End Hunger.
All registration fees and donations raised go directly to the partner organization of your choice. Register to walk for one partner organization, or walk to benefit all 10 equally
3. Eat a Thanksgiving Juicy Lucy at the 5-8 Club!
Throughout the month of November, guests can visit any of the 5-8 Club’s four locations (Champlin, Maplewood, Minneapolis, and West St. Paul) to support Meals on Wheels. From November 1-30, $1 from each purchase of the Thanksgiving Juicy Lucy or the Great Pumpkin cocktail will be donated to Meals on Wheels. You can also donate $2 to receive a $5 coupon valid for the month of December.
4. Find a project that’s right for you.
5. Birthday bags for children
You can help make a child’s birthday party one to remember! Pack a bag with basically anything that would make a child’s birthday party fun!
6. Project Pajama Pride
You can help Family Pathways provide a bag of pajamas to women and children escaping domestic abuse. The mission project is to provide a personalized bag of pajamas for each woman and child that seek refuge at the domestic abuse shelter.
