Local Non-Profit Beneficiaries for 2015
ModernTribe has declared November 29th, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, “Shop Jewish Sunday” and has partnered with over a dozen Atlanta non-profits to benefit from store sales - in store and online.
ModernTribe is partnering with local non-profits to promote shopping for their cause: when members or supporters shop at ModernTribe, 10% goes to their organization. People are encouraged to come out, especially, on Shop Jewish Sunday, where all shoppers will be asked to choose an organization to donate 10%.
This year, we've expanded the offer to include online shopping starting now - through the end of Hanukkah, 2015 which ends Monday, December 14th.
Beneficiaries of the 10% give-back are Jewish organizations as well as non-profits located in and serving the Sweet Auburn district of Atlanta including StandUp for Kids, programs supporting homeless youth ages 13-25, and Trinity Community Ministries, a residential transitional program designed to serve homeless men.
2015 BENEFICIARIES INCLUDE:
Trinity Community Ministries - Trinity House is a 36-bed transitional housing and rehabilitation program, is much more than a shelter – it’s a life line for men to turn their lives around. Trinity House restores hope by providing support services leading back to employment, income, and recovery. Trinity House is a program of Big Bethel Church, our neighborhood church with the big, blue "Jesus Saves" sign.
