You can help others by participating in the City’s charitable giving campaign
Each autumn, the City organizes a campaign to make it easy for employees to give something back to the community by making a donation to a charitable cause they support. This year, the campaign, “Better Days, Better Future,” will be led by co-chairs Bridgette Bornstein,
During the two-week campaign — set for Oct. 11– 25 — employees can make a one-time donation or sign up for a payroll deduction to give to one or more charitable organizations. Last year, the campaign raised $98,482 for organizations working on causes such as reducing homelessness, improving the environment, feeding the hungry, finding disease cures and helping victims of violence.
These nine umbrella organizations — which together represent hundreds of giving options — have been selected to participate in this year’s campaign:
- Community Health Charities Minnesota
- Community Shares of Minnesota
- Greater Twin Cities United Way
- Hennepin History Museum
- Minnesota Environmental Fund
- Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless
- Peace Maker Foundation.
- United Arts Fund
- United Negro College Fund.
An event is set for 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 22 in the City Hall Rotunda. Watch this newsletter and CityTalk for details.
