In an effort to support local businesses and provide holiday meals for workers, Enbridge purchased over 3,600 gift cards from northern Minnesota restaurants, totaling more than $90,000, according to a news release.
“We wanted to find a way to give back to the communities and businesses in northern Minnesota who we know have experienced significant economic strain due to the pandemic, while also thanking the construction crews who are building the Line 3 replacement project,” says Lorraine Little, director of community engagement. “Purchasing these gift cards is a win-win because they help support local businesses and provide some holiday cheer for the crews.”
Workers picked up their meals from local establishments all across the state. More than 600 workers have received gift cards to enjoy meals at the following businesses:
DaRoos Pizza, Bagley and Fosston
Lazy Jack’s Bar and Grill, Bemidji
Fozzie’s BBQ, Bemidji and Thief River Falls
Good Life Cafe, Park Rapids
Wilton Bar and Grill, Wilton
