As we enter the holiday season, it’s apparent that this time of the year, traditionally characterized by warmth and togetherness, is also marked by growing feelings of resentment, division, and fear. Now more than ever, it is important to commit a part of ourselves toward strengthening community and caring for each other in whatever way we can.

This year, we’re doing something a little different. On Black Friday, we will be donating $10 to the Minnesota Homeless Coalition every time you purchase $100 in gift cards. Your decision to give the gift of Dakota this holiday season will reach even further by giving the gift of food and shelter to someone in need. So, to put it simply, if you shop Dakota on Black Friday, you will get your holiday shopping out of the way, donate to a worthy cause (at no personal cost), AND receive a little something extra for yourself.

To summarize:
$100 Gift Card Purchase
$20 Promotional gift card for you
$10 to the Minnesota Homeless Coalition from the Dakota

A statement from the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless:

We are so grateful for your dedication to Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless, and we couldn’t do this work without you. Your generous gift will go toward helping us advance our advocacy efforts to ensure that every Minnesotan has a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home. Since 2012, MCH has secured $270 million in state investments for housing and services through our Homes for All campaign. These funds go directly to organizations serving people experiencing homelessness across the state. That’s what a gift to MCH turns into. Imagine the return on your investment in our work!

Thank you for being a part of our Dakota/Vieux Carre family. From our home to yours, Happy Holidays.
