Through the month of November, the Minnesota Orchestra is partnering with Good in the ‘Hood, a Minnesota organization dedicated to changing lives together with simple acts of kindness.
With their Holiday Help: Adopt a Family program, Good in the ‘Hood supports children in Minnesota by collecting gift cards for families in need. This year, they are requesting donations of $25 giftcards so that parents are able to choose the gifts that best fit the needs and interests of their children.
Watch this video from Shawn Morrison, Executive Director of Good in the 'Hood, to learn more about the program, and then see below for details on how you can participate from home or when you attend a performance at Orchestra Hall during the month of November.
The following are a variety of gift cards that are recommended as they are frequently requested by families. It would be most helpful if each card donated was valued at $25 as this best supports efforts to meet the needs of families with children:
- Target; Walmart; Sam's Club; or Costco
- Amazon; Visa; Mastercard; Happy Cards
- Home Depot; Menards or Lowes
- Kohls; Old Navy; Sephora; DSW; American Eagle, or Marshalls
- Starbucks; Caribou; or Barnes & Noble
- Chipotle; DQ; Applebee’s; Panera; Chilis; or Cheesecake Factory; Burger King, McDonalds; Subway; Chick-fil-A, Outback Steakhouse
