Celebrate Jordan Week of Kindness 2018

Posted by Jared Laabs on 5:07 PM on June 26, 2018


Twin Cities Habitat is proud to partner with the Jordan Area Community Council to bring the 3rd Annual Jordan Week of Kindness. We're celebrating our long-standing commitment to North Minneapolis and investment in the Jordan neighborhood through our Neighborhood Revitalization program. For the past months, we have been working alongside outstanding residents and the neighborhood association to beautify this block through home repairs, a clean-up, and flower planting.

The event is about coming together to have fun and celebrate what we’ve accomplished as a community! This annual celebration will feature over 20 local vendors, several performers, activities for kids, and free food for all. Below is a preview of what you can expect during the celebration. Join us!

Saturday, June 30, 2018
12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Irving Ave North
(between 30th Ave. N. and Lowry)
