The Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square presented by Alaska Airlines partners with the Sharks Foundation to support Loved Twice, a Bay Area nonprofit dedicated to aiding underprivileged families through the collection of baby clothes. In honor of the holiday season’s spirit of charitable giving, the three organizations will hold a clothing drive in celebration of Giving Tuesday. People are welcome to join in support of Loved Twice by dropping off new or gently-used baby clothes at the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square, San Francisco. For each item of clothing donated, Alaska Airlines will be contributing $1 in cash to the nonprofit that will go directly to families in need.
Additionally, each person who donates will be entered into a raffle with the chance to win a handful of prizes, including two roundtrip tickets anywhere on Alaska Airlines’ or Virgin America’s network, a one-night stay in a Union Square hotel, or a free dinner at a top-rated restaurant in San Francisco. Free face paintings and other fun giveaways and entertainment will be available throughout the day to participants.
For individuals not able to drop off donations on Giving Tuesday, Alaska Airlines and the Sharks Foundation will continue the clothing drive on Sunday, December 10. Those attending the San Jose Sharks vs. Minnesota Wild game on December 10 are encouraged to bring baby clothes with them and have another opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a pair of roundtrip tickets courtesy of Alaska Airlines.
