Philanthropy is alive and well at The Bridges. Our generous locally owned shops, service industries and restaurants are proud to be part of such a great community, and they show that pride by giving back to all kinds of causes and organizations. This October, we highlight “Giving Back at the Bridges” with some special charity events and a thank you to all of you who help make these events so successful. While we feature giving back this October, our locations help our community all year long—some of them every single day.
Posh Boutique is hosting Denim Does Good, a charity event for The Teddy Bear Den in Sioux Falls. Customers can bring in gently used denim in exchange for a $30 off a new pair, and all the donated jeans go to low income pregnant women and new moms. This event is happening now through October 7th.
J.Ella Boutique is donating 10% of sales every Sunday in the month of October to help decorate and furnish rooms at a domestic abuse shelter.
You’ve Been Framed is donating 15% off all Alex and Ani purchases made on October 19th from 4 pm- 7pm to the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation.
Shop Dog Boutique is hosting a Retrieve a Golden of the Midwest event on October 28th. Rescued golden retrievers will be available for adoption and proceeds of special bakery sales will go directly to supporting RAGOM. Shop Dog also sells Give Pet products, and with every 200 bags sold, 2000 dog treats are donated to the Sioux Falls Humane Society.
Kidtopia will help birthdays be special at the Children’s Home Society by making sure kids with birthdays get nice new gifts—not just in October, but all year long.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Sanford Women’s Health Plaza, located at The Bridges, urges you to get your mammograms and take part in breast cancer events. All month long, you’ll find events and promotions for the Edith Sanford Breast Foundation across Siouxland to help raise money and awareness in an effort to find a cure. Find out more at sanfordhealthfoundation.com.
Flyboy Donuts and Oh My Cupcakes! both rank high on the “giving back” scale with countless donations of donuts and cupcakes to various organizations and causes. They do this almost daily and without thinking twice. Both locations are such a sweet gift to The Bridges.
Of course, none of this generosity could be possible without amazing customers like you. Thank you for supporting The Bridges and your local entrepreneurs!
