Looking to help local families in need this Holiday season?


Join us in supporting The Park Place, an organization apart of Flourish Placemaking Collective.

When shopping for this Holiday Season, why not spread the joy further by supporting local Minneapolis families? It is no secret that toys are expensive, and many families struggle to provide a gift for their children over the holiday season. This year, The Park Place is hosting a Holiday Party for our kids and families enrolled in programming to ring in the season. Part of this event includes a “Toy Store” where parents can shop for their children at a discounted rate.

 This is where we need YOU! We’ve put together an Amazon Wish List to fill our Toy Store by December 20th. Donations will go directly to provide a child with a Holiday gift this year. Any revenue from the store goes directly into youth and family programming to provide continued support for the remaining year. Feel free to visit
