SHOP 4 A CAUSE: Event Supporting Local Nonprofits
What If We Could have an event that included $1 Cuppa Yo, $10 in Dutch Bros. Coffee gift cards, Free Slices of Cake, $500 in Door Prizes, Free T-Shirts and an opportunity to shop for our favorite nonprofit?
You’d have over 100 people show up and support 20 local nonprofits with over $20,000 in supplies – in 2 hours!
As a society we are conditioned to give back at the end of the year. Tax advantages sure, but advertisements abound remind us to giveback towards the end of the year. That’s fine, but local nonprofits, who better the fabric of our community, have needs all year long.
The SHOP 4 A CAUSE event was designed to give local communities an opportunity to give in a tangible way – by purchasing items the nonprofit can use right now.
Honestly - that it didn't require a lot of foot work on our end. So much of what we do requires so much energy. It was nice to show up and just thank people as they brought items to our cart.Nonprofit
