Natick Mall invites non-profits to take part in Spring Surprises campaign
Local non-profits are invited to take part in Natick Mall’s Spring Surprises campaign that will run Saturdays from March 19-April 23 at the Mall in the Neiman Marcus court.
Here’s the deal:
- Non-profits can host giveaway stations at the Mall for four-hour periods, allowing the non-profits to promote their offerings and collect donations. The Mall will include mention of the outfits in their communications.
- The Mall will give away dozens of items, ranging in value from about $5-$7, to shoppers just for the fun of it. Or rather, “to celebrate the optimism that comes with the change of seasons.” Giveaways could include things like sunflowers, candles, and spring-themed cookie cutters.
