Superiorland looks to ‘Spread Goodness’

MARQUETTE — Thanks to the efforts of Anna Dravland, creator of Spread Goodness Day, today has been set aside as a day to make a difference.

The intent of Spread Goodness Day is for groups and individuals to participate by doing good deeds, no matter how insignificant, to make a positive impact in the world.

Businesses from across Marquette County are feeling inspired, and have created opportunities for customers to commit acts of goodness by purchasing certain products and services.

At The Flying Moose, 351 W. Washington St., Marquette, a portion of all Borealis Baking Company items and Superior Culture Kombucha will be donated to raise money for the Marquette County Pigs-N-Heat Fire Relief Fund.

The Landmark Inn, at 230 N. Front St., Marquette, will be donating 10 percent of its food sales to Room at the Inn, which operates a local homeless shelter and warming center. Its staff will also donate funds collected from the company’s Friday “Jeans Day.”

Meanwhile, 5 percent of all sales at Getz’s, located at 218 S. Front St., will be donated to Teaching Family Homes of Upper Michigan.

In Ishpeming, Wilderness Sports, at 107 E. Division St., will donate one pair of socks for every pair purchased to the Ishpeming Salvation Army for children and adults in need.

When you spend $50 or more at Super One Foods in Marquette or Negaunee, at 3070 U.S. 41 and 440 U.S. 41, respectively, a $5 donation bag will go to a local food pantry.
