Night to Unite 2019
Last night the City of Eden Prairie held another successful Night to Unite with a staggering 185 neighborhoods hosting block parties (up 20 parties from last year!). Once again this year we asked residents to donate food to PROP (People Reaching Out to other People) and we were not disappointed. Eden Prairie residents donated 9,179 pounds of food and $80 cash along with $200 in gift cards to PROP. Thank you to everyone who generously donated to this important community resource.
The winner of this year’s contest to collect the most food is the Round Lake Road neighborhood with more than 542 pounds of food. To celebrate their generosity, they will receive an ice cream social party including a visit from McGruff, Sparky and other city officials. The event will also include a bounce house donated by the Eden Prairie Kinderberry Hill Child Development Center.Thank you to everyone who welcomed us to their parties, offered us water and took a few minutes out of their evenings to chat with us. We value your support and look forward to next year’s Night to Unite!
