This Friday, more than 30 local businesses will be donating a portion of their sales to local charities.
The program is called Ballard Gives Back, in which local merchants are dedicating to help support specific charities on Black Friday (Nov. 29). The event started in 2013, in part to encourage people to shop locally.
“’Shop local’ is not just a catch phrase, it’s a powerful tool by which communities can connect, prosper and empower others,” Legh Burns, co-owner of re-souL said in a release. “Seattle has a strong, independent mindset and there is no better example than the businesses of Ballard coming together to spread the message.”
The full list of businesses and the charities they’ll be supporting is available here.
