A more socially-conscience effort is planned for our community on Black Friday, as participating Ballard businesses are donating a portion of their proceeds to a local non-profit for Ballard Gives Back.

More than 30 Ballard area businesses are putting a generous spin on Black Friday by participating in the Ballard Gives Back program.
Ballard’s business owners are encouraging shoppers to skip the crowds and shop locally in Ballard for a good cause on November 29, 2019, Black Friday.

The program began in 2013 and continues to grow each year as more businesses flock to Ballard’s bustling shopping and dining district.

“In addition to the ‘giving’ portion of the post-Thanksgiving weekend, the Ballard merchant community is promoting a message to shop local and shop small. When small businesses thrive, communities thrive. When people support their local merchants and small businesses, more of their money stays in the community,” said Legh Burns, co-owner of re-souL.

 Many businesses are extending their donations throughout the entire holiday weekend. Here is a list of participating
businesses and the charity they are donating to when you shop at their location on Black Friday:
