Donations Begin!


Beginning Wednesday, March 15th you can donate to receive an EZ or VIP Pass at any of the 14 participating Shop Hop shops…your purchase goes directly to local food shelves.

What’s an EZ Pass? 
Instead of making a separate cash donation at each shop during the hop, donate $50.00 in advance (at the shop of your choice), and you’ll be guaranteed our canvas tote bag and giveaway! The canvas tote bag will be yours to take home immediately. The collectible pin will be set aside for you to be picked up at any time during the hop. Supplies of bags and pins are limited and may not be available during the hop so we suggest you get your donation in early!

What’s a VIP Pass?
For those who want to go that extra mile for Minnesota’s food shelves, give $100 and receive a few extra perks! VIP Passes are available for purchase until the day before the start of the hop, But supplies are limited so don’t wait to donate!

With the VIP Pass you’ll be given the commemorative 2017 Shop Hop tote bag when you make your donation this year. You’ll also be guaranteed the collectible pin which you’ll get at each shop you visit. You’ll also be given a coupon good for 20% off your purchase at the shop of your choice during the hop AND you’ll be entered into an exclusive giveaway for 7 skeins of 2017 shop hop yarn!

If you want to ensure your donation is tax deductible, it’s best to write a check directly to the specific food bank or use cash.

Of course you can still donate cash at each shop you visit, we call it Give as you go, instead of purchasing a pass. You’ll still get the collectible pin with each cash donation!

All of the participating shops are working hard to make this the best hop yet!
