About DRG & Friends


Downtown Resource Group (DRG) has once again partnered with Best Christmas Ever (BCE) to bless one very deserving family this holiday season.  In fact, this is DRG's 7th Christmas blessing a family in need! We keep coming back year after year because we love seeing the direct impact of our efforts and YOUR generous donations.  For more info on BCE, https://www.bcemovement.org

SELECTED FAMILY STORY:  After reading through 400 heartbreaking nominations, we narrowed it down to one that spoke to our hearts the most.  This family does NOT know they were nominated or selected.  The element of SURPRISE is what truly makes BCE so special! 

Close to 3 years ago, the loving wife and mother of 2 young children was diagnosed with Stage 4 Terminal Colorectal Cancer. Despite being told she had 3-5 years max while enduring chemotherapy & radiation, she has done her very best to be positive and brave for her children as well as be the rock for her entire extended family. She loves to give back and shares her personal journey often so that others know that they are not alone in their fight against cancer. Unfortunately, her health continues to be on the decline and this could very well be her last quality Christmas with her family.  Doesn't it seem only fitting to give this family The Best Christmas Ever?

Along with gifts from our gift tag trees (see locations below), our goal is to raise at least $12,500 in monetary donations that specifically meet the needs of this family such as paying off medical bills, covering mortgage payments and freshening up their living space. 

NEW THIS YEAR: 
Who doesn't love a GIVEAWAY!?! *** Earn 1 entry for every $100 donated or for every 3 gift tags purchased off the gift tree.***

Multiple drawings means multiple winners!!  Prizes include one night stay at a Lake Minnetonka home, one night stay at a new North Loop condo unit, gift cards to North Loop restaurants, bottles of wine, growlers of beer, hair services and more!

In addition, it is our goal to continuously expand our fundraising efforts.  It takes a village and we cannot do it alone.  Therefore, we are excited to announce that we have added business sponsors this year! The Little Gym of Edina, Pacifier, Farrell's Extreme Body Shaping (North Loop & St Paul) and Tillverkare for Hair will join us in our efforts to raise money and collect gifts for our family in need.  You can stop by any of these locations to select gift tags. 

DRG: 700 Washington Ave N in North Loop
Pacifier: 219 N 2nd St in North Loop
Farrell's: 304 N 6th Ave in North Loop or 477 Selby Ave in St. Paul
