Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Pillsbury United Communities.
Beginning in 1879 with Minneapolis’s first settlement house, Pillsbury United Communities co-creates enduring change toward a just society. Built with and for historically marginalized and underinvested groups across the community, with a united system of programs, neighborhood centers, and social enterprises they connect more than 55,000 individuals and their families each year. They are guided by a vision of thriving communities where every person has personal, social, and economic power.
Pillsbury United Communities is a community-building and nurturing network that realizes that systemic problems require systemic solutions: "We look beyond the narrow needs that bring people through our doors to address the many barriers standing in their way: from inadequate nutrition to disparities in education. Through interconnected assets that support people’s lives in a broad context, we knit lives and communities together and create an impact greater than the sum of our parts."
If you don't need anything from us, please consider directly supporting Pillsbury United Communities here.
If you DO find yourself in need of anything from us, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
