GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE

Because living in Minnesota rules, we give back to our community with Surly Gives A Damn (SGAD). We contribute to the fine organizations that are making the North a better place to live through charitable donations, partnerships, and volunteer events. Our volunteers are a really active, passionate bunch and man do they give a damn.

Regarding Donations

Due to the unexpected circumstances of COVID-19 and how it has affected our business, we are pausing our SGAD donation programing for now. With a skeleton crew and adapting our business to constant change, we are unable to process the donation you requested at this time. Once we are back up and on our feet, we will start fulfilling donation requests. Hopefully we’ll be able to help you with your fundraising needs in the future.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding.

SGAD Donation Garden Prep Day One

May 14, 2021 - 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

611 13th Ave NE

Food is needed more than ever right now, come be part of getting the SGAD donation garden ready for the growing season. We are looking for 15 folks each day to help move some dirt, restructure some space and get the garden ready for the 2021 growing season. The work will be fairly labor intensive with a pretty solid amount of heavy lifting, so come fully charged. 

We partner with our friends at Every Meal all summer long with their Grow & Give Program. Every Meal’s mission is to fight childhood hunger and we want to help them. Everything that is grown in our donation garden is donated to Every Meal, they in turn will make sure the fresh produce gets to their clients to have healthy, fresh produce over the summer months.

If you are healthy and able to come out to get the garden up and running, we would love to have you.
