On Thursday Little Town will host the Go Red event and Brother’s will partner with Catholic Services to donate 10 percent of the day’s sales to their respective charities. Catholic Charities will also launch a new Holiday Shopping Partners Card that will provide cardholders a 20 percent discount at many local retailers and restaurants in support of their work.
