‘Check in’ at The Local to raise money for Friends of the Skyway Senior Center

If you visit The Local this month, make sure you “check in” on Facebook.

During the entire month of February, every time someone checks in at The Local on Facebook, the Irish pub will donate $1 to the Friends of the Skyway Senior Center (up to $500). The Local is located at 931 Nicollet Mall (corner of 10th and Nicollet) in downtown Minneapolis.

Open since 2001, the UCare Skyway Senior Center provides a beautiful 2,000 square foot gathering place for seniors where they can socialize, take a class, exercise, use a computer, connect to community resources, read, relax, and enjoy conversation over a cup of coffee. The center is located at 950 Nicollet Mall, Suite 290, on the skyway-level of the Target store building.

The Friends of the Skyway Senior Center is a nonprofit organization that promotes the activities of the UCare Skyway Senior Center and provides financial and in-kind support for the Senior Center’s operation. With significant funding from UCare, the City of Minneapolis operates the senior center through the Department of Health and Family Support. Ryan Companies donates the space and furnishings, and financial support comes from several hundred individual donors, neighborhood associations, foundations and corporations.
