Shop for a Cause Day

Saturday, June 8, 2019 • All Day

What do you get when you combine fabulous downtown shopping with the spirit of giving? Shop For A Cause Day, of course!

When you shop at any of our participating locations on Saturday, June 8th, a portion of your purchase will directly benefit an outstanding local nonprofit organization: LearningWorks.

Shop For A Cause, now held twice a year, aims to raise money and awareness for local organizations, while also supporting our amazing small business community. It’s a win-win for all, so shop your heart out to make a difference!

About the beneficiary

Our nonprofit beneficiary, LearningWorks, reimagines learning through innovative programs that help children, adults, and families realize their potential and build thriving communities. Its programs include Service Works, which provides community service projects for young people making amends for non-violent offenses as a positive alternative to juvenile justice system involvement. Service Works participants spend time writing about their experiences, reflecting on their behavior, setting goals for the future, and giving back by participating in such activities as volunteering at a food pantry, serving a community meal, or rehabilitating a public space by removing graffiti.
