A Helping Hand at the Holidays: Hubble’s Tap to Host Holiday Fundraiser

Across Muscatine, businesses large and small will offer a helping hand to those in need this holiday season. For the third year in a row, Hubble’s Tap [Hubble’s] will host their annual holiday fundraiser on December 7th and 8th to benefit MCSA and area families, veterans, and the elderly in need.

As Glenda Lincoln, owner of Hubble’s, explained it, the annual fundraiser was started to help MCSA and others in need because she wanted to create a way to help give back to local people in need of a hand up. Each year since she started the event, Lincoln has reached out to MCSA and their domestic violence shelter for a list of items they need. She also reaches out to area schools and nursing homes to find out if they have any families, individuals, or veterans who could use some holiday gifts or cold weather gear. Then, Lincoln and others who frequent Hubble’s get to work overseeing festivities sure to raise money for these worthy causes.

This year, the Hubble’s fundraiser will feature many great opportunities to give to those in need. Those looking for an easy way to support the cause can purchase a $1 or $5 charity card. All the money from each card will go to purchasing needed items for MCSA or a local person in need. A donation box will also provide a simple way to contribute, as anyone may add new clothing, toys, and non-perishable food to it.

On both the 7th and 8th, a bake sale, featuring homemade breads, candies, pies, and other seasonal treats will allow people to get a tasty snack or holiday gift while supporting the need. Customers can also enjoy a delicious potluck dinner for a donation during Holiday’s at Hubble’s, too. A fifty-fifty drawing will add to the fun of these events.

For those who want to help out while getting their holiday shopping done, the silent auction will prove perfect for them. Featuring more than twenty baskets of high-quality items each day, bidders can feel good that the items they get will not only delight their friends and family but help others in need have a happy holiday season too. As Lincoln put it, “we have a lot of good candies and caramels, breads, and you can do a lot of Christmas shopping—the baskets are pretty nice, [and] it helps us all.”

Following the fundraiser, Lincoln uses all the money raised to purchase the items MCSA, the nursing homes, and schools requested and delivers them, along with the donations from the donation box. Altogether, everything raised from the fundraiser goes back to the community to help ensure those in need know that Muscatine will take care of them. So, as Holidays at Hubble’s approaches, consider helping them out and making the holidays better for the most vulnerable in Muscatine County.
