You’ve heard of Cyber Monday and Black Friday? Now we have a day for giving thanks and giving back…#GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving back and we have joined this day with #LansingLoves #GivingTuesday!
Sarah Schillio, Senator Debbie Stabenow, and Joan Nelson
The purpose of the Giving Tuesday movement is to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations – like Allen Neighborhood Center! Give back to the Eastside December 2nd.

We have lots to celebrate this year! It’s the first anniversary of the opening of the AMP.
In the past year we brought our Allen Street Farmers Market indoors for the winter, launched the Exchange food hub and opened a licensed kitchen. These programs help support culinary job skill training and food entrepreneurism and connect farmers and food producers with chefs, grocery stores, restaurants, and you.
Bring your cash or check book to give your tax-deductible contribution on November 14th at 5:30pm! We ask that you contribute what you’re comfortable: $10, $25, $50, $100!
The Big Fuss menu will offer delicious hor d’oeuvres, convivial conversation, tours of the AMP, informational displays, and a cash bar featuring one of our anchor tenants, Sleepwalker Spirits and Ale. We will also have a short presentation starting at 6:00pm as well as a drawing for a lovely gift basket filled with local goodies.
We hope you will join us to celebrate Allen Neighborhood Center!
