With Love from Andersonville: Valentine’s Day Weekend Fundraiser
02/10/2017 - 02/14/2017
14% of Sales donated February 10-14
Specific Dates/Hours vary by business
The Andersonville business community is ready to give back in big way. For the weekend leading up to Valentine’s Day, February 10-14, 27 Andersonville businesses have joined forces to give back 14% of their sales to a charity or non-profit chosen by the business.
“In our current political climate, there’s an increased need to support organizations whose missions are under threat. In searching for ways for Milk Handmade to help, I was overwhelmed with the amount of causes that need support, and instead of dividing our donation between so many deserving non-profits, I decided to reach out to the neighborhood to see how we could multiply the effect. Andersonville came through, and this Valentine’s Day weekend, the community is banding together to give back.”
– Hallie Borden, Owner of Milk Handmade and event organizer
Visitors to Andersonville from February 10-14 should look for door signs with the “With Love from Andersonville” logo, which will indicate which charity/non-profit the business will be donating 14% of their sales to and on which specific days the donation will take place. Hours will vary by business. The event allows customers to take an active role in supporting not only a small business or restaurant in the community, but also an organization they stand behind.
