Giving Tuesday: Here are businesses participating in Alexandria

Fibre space at 1319 Prince Street

It’s Giving Tuesday, and a number of Alexandria businesses are donating a percentage of sales to nonprofits in partnership with the Old Town Business Association.

Unless specified, funds from these businesses will go to MedStreet, The Dream ProjectThe Potomac Conservancy and The Spitfire Club.

The event is part of Shop Small Week in Alexandria, which runs until Dec. 2.

There are just a handful of businesses within the Old Town Business Association participating:

  • Three Sisters Boutique (213 King Street) is sending proceeds to Medstreet
  • Chadwicks Restaurant, 203 The Strand Street
  • fibre space, 1319 Prince Street, is benefiting Project Knitwell
  • Lucky Knot, 101 King Street
  • Old Town Books, 130 S. Royal Street
  • Penny Post, 1201 King Street
  • Red Barn Mercantile, 1117 King Street
  • Salon DeZen, 118 N. Fayette Street
  • Ten Thousand Villages, 915 King Street

Dozens of businesses participated last year.

ACT For Alexandria is also fundraising for itself. This year the nonprofit, which steers funds toward Alexandria organizations in the annual Spring2ACTion fundraiser, is raising funds for itself.

For every dollar donated — up to $7,000 — will be matched by Verdence Capital Advisors.

“Giving Tuesday is the launching point for our end of the year campaign to raise funds for ACT for Alexandria,” said Kyle Reardon, the nonprofit’s communications and marketing manager. “We’re extremely thankful and excited to be partnering with Verdence. They’re being ext generous with their matching gift.”
