#ShopSmallSaturday and #GivingTuesday: Donate to the Prairie Village Municipal Foundation

Posted by Bonnie Limbird

I refuse to think about (or participate in) black Friday, but I ❤️#ShopSmallSaturday, and I’m ALL about #GivingTuesday!

Shop Small Saturday is an annual holiday the weekend after Thanksgiving with the goal of reminding consumers that they play a key role in helping the small businesses in their community thrive and encouraging them to get out and shop and dine at local businesses. In other words, eschewing the big box and huge online retailers for the “mom & pop” around the corner.

Prairie Village has many shops perfect for dining, purchasing holiday decorations, and for gift-giving, such as:

But be sure to bring your mask to all shopping, dining, or other commercial businesses in Prairie Village, as it IS required to enter. You can also shop some of these stores from the comfort and safety of your home and sometimes arrange curbside pickup.

Giving Tuesday refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and is a “global movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.”

We can start here in Prairie Village by donating to the Prairie Village Municipal Foundation and helping those in need right here in our community.

“This year has felt very different than the one we expected. Our day-to-day has shifted dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prairie Village residents and our community as a whole have been deeply affected, and it is critical that we commit to supporting one another now more than ever.”

There’s more need in our community right now due to COVID-19 and its economic impacts, and thanks to a generous Prairie Village resident, gifts received through the end of 2020 will be matched dollar for dollar!

Some of my favorite Prairie Village Foundation funds:

Shop with a Cop, 2019
Captain Washington, Olaf, and Sven

Make your donation today! Or on Giving Tuesday! Or anytime before December 31, 2020, to have your donation matched for maximum impact to the Prairie Village Municipal Foundation!

I hope you’re enjoying your long weekend, and visiting with family that you were able to. Stay well!
