The Big Give Returns to Downtown Holland February 1

The Big Give is back! On Saturday, February 1, Downtown Holland will be thanking the community for their support in a BIG way! That day, over 30 Downtown Holland businesses will be donating 15% of all sales to non-profit organizations all day long. Each participating shop and restaurant will be selecting a deserving organization that they’re passionate about supporting. The more you shop and dine in Downtown Holland on Saturday, February 1 during The Big Give, the more good you’ll help Downtown Holland do in the community!

“Our Downtown Holland business owners appreciate the support they receive all year long from the local community,” said Downtown Holland Marketing Coordinator Kara de Alvare, “The Big Give is their way of giving back, as it allows them to support non-profit organizations that are doing such great work right here in the local community. Last year, over $16,000 was raised for charity and our goal this year is to be able to donate at least $20,000.”

Downtown Holland will also be partnering with Ottawa Food to host a food drive to support local food pantries as part of The Big Give.
