The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and all the other black individuals who have lost their lives in the wake of police brutality and other acts of racism need our attention. With all the protests and attention around these issues, now is the time for action and we can’t afford not to speak up. With so many of us feeling helpless around these issues, one way we can help is to make a donation and I've decided to donate to a cause that my mother would have supported if she was well.
Their website explains, "Every week, BrightSide partners with small retailers throughout North and South Minneapolis to provide affordable, high quality fruits and vegetables to the community. Many of our partner retailers are damaged or necessarily shut down leaving residents with far fewer options to obtain fresh foods. Please help BrightSide donate fresh produce directly to community members.”
