A Full Accounting of Damns Given in 2020

2020 presented a unique challenge for Surly Gives A Damn. The needs in our community were never greater, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest following George Floyd’s murder. And working together to help in whatever way we could was made exponentially more difficult by the pandemic’s safety restrictions.

Still, like so many others in the Twin Cities, we adapted on the fly and figured out what we could do and where we could do the most damn good. There was no shortage of courageous SGAD volunteers who wanted to help us in these efforts, whether it was distributing food, assembling dressers, giving blood, or even building an entire house. In a year when silver linings were few and far between, we rarely wanted for people willing to give back to the community. Thank you.

The full 2020 Surly Gives A Damn wrap-up is below:

And a HUGE thank you to our 20 local non-profit partners for helping our community function during a global pandemic. In addition to the ones above, that means you, Touchstone Mental Health, Midtown Greenway, The Loppet Foundation, Toys For Tots, House of Charity, People, Inc., ReStore, Special Olympics Minnesota, and Tree Trust.

2021 is providing ample opportunities to give a damn. Find your next volunteer shift at https://surlybrewing.com/surly-gives-a-damn/.
