Mark your calendars! Resources Unite in partnership with Live Like Jack will be holding a candy cane bombing on Monday January 29th, 6:30pm at the University of Dubuque in the MTAC building located on the corner of Algona and Bennett Streets. This really a fun way to get involved as a family!
We’ve got 2,000 candy canes that will be attached to a card that speaks to Live Like Jack’s mission about spreading kindness and also of Resources Unite’s free resource center (emergency food pantry). Some of those candy canes will also have some really cool freebies connected to them as well.
Once the candy canes are assembled Monday night, the volunteers will then canvass community parking lots, putting them on cars. Not only is this about paying it forward like Live Like Jack’s mission, but it’s also about making sure people in our community knows about the resource center!
Want to help? If so, here’s 2 ways you can:
1. Show up Monday night at 6:30 pm at UD in the MTAC building and help assemble the candy canes and distribute them.
2. Donate some freebies. We’ve got some great stuff from Big Apple Bagels and Carlos O’Kelly’s, but what else could we attach to candy canes to brighten someone’s day? Maybe a free haircut? Maybe a free coffee or a movie pass? Any ideas and donations would be greatly appreciated!
