Over 30 Andersonville Businesses Will Donate 14% Of Sales To Charity Today Through Valentines

love-1With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, over 30 stores located in Andersonville will be banding together to give back 14% of sales to charities or non-profits of their choice.

The “With Love from Andersonville” event which starts today and continues through February 14 will not only give you the chance to find the perfect gift for the special someone in your life, it will also help support many local and national organizations that are in need of financial contributions.

Hallie Borden, owner of Milk Handmade at 5137 N. Clark, organized the event with the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce. According to a Chamber press release; some of the benefiting organizations will include, Equality Illinois, Planned Parenthood, North Side Housing and Supportive Services in Uptownand Care for Real.

“In our current political climate, there’s an increased need to support organizations whose missions are under threat,” said Borden. “In searching for ways for Milk Handmade to help, I was overwhelmed with the amount of causes that need support, and instead of dividing our donation between so many deserving non-profits, I decided to reach out to the neighborhood to see how we could multiply the effect. Andersonville came through, and this Valentine’s Day weekend, the community is banding together to give back.”

All participating businesses will be displaying door signs with the “With Love from Andersonville” logo. That sign will not only communicate which charity/non-profit that business will be giving to, but it will also display the days the donation will take place.
