The 3000 Acts of Kindness event that benefits the homeless every year took place at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Downtown Minneapolis on December 11th, and RMA Publicity is happy to share that three of the four major media outlets in the Twin Cities offered great coverage of the event.
FOX 9 News went live from the event in the morning as preparations were being made for the more than 4,000 homeless people who came to the event to pick up a brand-new winter coat, a hoodie, boots, a hat, socks, underwear and toiletries. KSTP TV, KARE 11 and the MN Sun Sailor newspaper covered the event as well.
All of the items that were given away were donated by individuals, as well as the event’s sponsors, which include Chick-fil-A and Red Wing Shoes. Attendees were also offered free haircuts and foot massages provided by volunteers, and had access to social services that can help with temporary housing.
New this year, people who used to be homeless but are now in housing shared their personal stories throughout the day. Former addicts in recovery spoke at the event as well.
Event founder Danielle Igbanugo says this year's crowd was more than triple the 900 people who came the first year, and almost double the 2022 figure of 2,751 guests served. "Helping others is what we are called to do,” said Igbanugo.
“The need is there. I see it every day, whether I’m in the suburbs, or in Downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul. It’s everywhere. I think at some point in our life we all need a hand. Someone who cares. Someone who is willing to help."
Over the weekend, FOX 9 and KARE 11 did preview stories about the event, as volunteers were setting up.
