Winona Daily News - 6.0-Chamber program helps businesses make giving plan

Winona Daily News - 6.0: "Chamber program helps businesses make giving plan

By Brady Averill | Winona Daily News
Adventure Cycle and Ski owner Brad Walker gets weekly requests from area organizations to donate.

He donates gift certificates, rather than cash, that organizations can use to raise funds.

No real rhyme or reason explains how or when he decides to give.

'I don't really follow any particular standard or plan,' he said. 'It depends on the organization and what they're doing.'

Donation requests inundate some small businesses in Winona on a weekly, sometimes daily basis.

Many owners are like Walker. They have no idea when they should say 'yes' and when they should say 'no.'
