In our 30+ years of business, Holy Land has been an integral part of NE Minneapolis and has always supported the NE community and wider metro area. Our efforts began in NE Minneapolis working closely with neighborhood development organizations and community groups to help devise the central avenue small area plan which included adding lighting and parking lots to the neighborhood that complied with crime prevention through environmental design principles. We have also contributed to the development of affordable housing units that helped diversify central avenue.  This resulted in the honorable recognition from the city mayor and city council proclaiming Holy Land as ‘Heart of NE Minneapolis’ and naming August 21, 2002 as Holy Land Day in the city of Minneapolis.

 

Apart from offering resources to local organizations, businesses and religious centers in Minneapolis, Holy Land has focused its efforts on education and combating hunger in developing countries. We have provided sponsorships to families and children across the Middle East and partnered with local non-profit, ARAHA, to build schools in the Horn of Africa.  The Holy Land Scholarship Fund, established in 2016, now sends more than 50 students to higher education in Sudan. To learn more about our work with ARAHA, visit their website here (https://www.araha.org/blog/our-long-standing-partnership-with-holy-land-brand). Most recently, we have committed to enhancing this work further by partnering with the Minneapolis Foundation to establish the Holy Land Charitable Fund to support local nonprofit organizations with a focus on supporting racial justice, uplifting marginalized communities and actively working for systemic change.
