December: Citizen Activists Holiday Party - Do Something Good.
Thursday, December 20, 2018 at 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM CST
Pryes Brewing Company 1401 West River Road N, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55411
Join us for something a little different for the December Third Thursday - a citizen activist Holiday Party hosted by the Kindness Action Network and Women's March Minnesota!
Come on down for a pre-preview of Women's Wave Minnesota - the 2019 Women's March. Sign up to volunteer, get some gear, meet fellow marchers, talk about why you are marching and get information on the Women's March coming Saturday, January 19th.
The Kindness Action Network will provide some easy opportunities do some good and to spread some kindness with service project stations.
Make a scarf or hat, put together personal care kits for people experiencing homelessness (donations will go to the Neighborhood House, Face to Face Health & Counseling, Simpson Housing Services and Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center) and write some handmade welcome cards to for asylum seekers arriving in San Diego (San Diego Rapid Response Network).
Small steps, big impact.
Bring yourself, some friends and consider bringing one of the following to donate to people in need:
- Target or Cub Food gift cards ($10-20)
- Women's Underwear and Bras (all sizes)
- Feminine Hygiene Products
- Diapers, wipes
- Ear buds, phone chargers
Thank you to Pryes Brewing Company for hosting us! They have delicious beer and food available for purchase.
