Our Frothy family is filled with people who care about their community, and we are grateful for you. This holiday season we are joining forces with several other indie businesses, friends, and non-profits to give back to our neighbors in need, and organizations we are passionate about. But, we need your help! Here is how you can be involved in Nashville, Franklin, and Chattanooga.
Toy + Clothing Drives
Help us make Christmas shine for everyone! From now until December 14th, Lightning 100 & Frothy Monkey are partnering with the Metro Police Christmas Charities to collect new, unwrapped toys, and supplies for the elderly. You can find toy collection boxes at 3 Frothy Monkey locations; 12South, The Nations & Avenue of the Arts Downtown. Plus, Lightning 100 is accepting donations at the Lightning 100 office at 1310 Clinton Street. Suite 215. Nashville. 37203.
Bring new and unwrapped toys to Frothy Franklin to be collected for the Franklin Firefighter’s Charities holiday drive! If you would like to fulfill specific wishes, visit Franklin fire stations to pick up a tag. Items will be distributed to Williamson County families in need who are chosen by the FFA. The collection at Frothy Franklin will wrap up in mid December.
Our Southside location will be a drop off location for The Forgotten Child Fund a Chattanooga based charity run by the police and firefighters, who deliver the toys in a firetruck to the kids. Bring your donations to Frothy Southside by December 18th.
IndieNashGiving is a homegrown movement that takes place in Nashville (and in our case, Franklin + Chattanooga as well!) on Small Business Saturday — the Saturday after Thanksgiving — when shoppers are encouraged to support local businesses. This Small Business Saturday, a group of independent Nashville businesses will go one step further and demonstrate the impact shopping local can have on our city.
When you’re out and about on Small Business Saturday (November 30, 2019), be sure to visit us and other IndieNashgiving participants. As we give a portion of sales to local non-profits who are doing good. Look how far the ripple effect can go when you shop local! You’ll get fabulous goods and services; your dollars will fuel the local economy; and you’ll have a direct impact on those most in need in our community.
Frothy Monkey will be donating 10% of sales of retail coffee on Small Business Saturday to two organizations, Metro Police Christmas Charities and Tennessee Equality Project. Thank you to our friends at Parnassus Books for organizing this amazing day of giving!
