NRRC is partnering with Bikes 4 Kids to reserve 30 bikes to be picked up at the Bikes 4 Kids Give Away Day: Kids come with a parent or guardian to the Brooklyn Center Warehouse and pick out their bike on Saturday, Dec 1. Kids come pick a bike and we have helmet fitting and a safety briefing. The warehouse is located at 5930 Earle Brown Drive, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430. Students must be preregistered with their height information so that we have the correct bikes ready for them. Email NRRC Staff at ContactUs@NRRC.org with the required information from the flyer.
Hello friends and neighbors, They're back! The fat pumpkins are at it again. Please join us in bringing food and fun to the youth and families of our community. We are looking for your assistance. Come join us in our fall harvest celebration. As a sponsor your financial contributions will bring a smile to the faces of each of the children who receive a free pumpkin and give a loving and good home to all of the pumpkins. Canned food donations will go to the food shelf at North Point. Come get you pumpkin on! If you would like to be a sponsor, a vendor or would like to volunteer give us a call.
The name of our event is the great North Minneapolis pumpkin giveaway. Coordinated by the
North Minneapolis roaring lions. A service club bringing good to the hood. Bringing the
neighborhood together in festivity and activity.
On this day we will give a pumpkin to every child that comes, up to 300. We will have a hay ride,
pumpkin carving contest, bouncy house, face painting, wishing well and hot apple cider.
Food will be prepared and served by Youth Farm, with a pumpkin theme. The event will be in
the Cub Foods side parking lot.
It will be held on Saturday, October 27 from 10 AM to 3 PM. We will also have a food drive to
help fill food shelves. We also want an opportunity for local politicians running for office to be
able to take 5 to 10 minutes to introduce themselves. We will also be doing voter registration.
It’s a great day to celebrate pumpkins, the harvest, and neighborhood unity.
October 21 from 10 AM to 3 PM

Community Input Opportunities
Some programs are specific to certain neighborhoods, such as low-income areas with high vacancy and foreclosure rates. The Northside Residents Redevelopment Council offers up to $5,000 in down-payment assistance for homebuyers in the Near North and Willard Hay neighborhoods of Minneapolis. There’s no income limit, and no monthly payments are required on the “forgivable loan,” which does not have to be paid back at all if the homeowner occupies the house for at least seven years.
