If you're looking to spend less and give more this holiday season, they'll also have a donation box set for anyone who'd like to drop off non-perishable items or new warm weather clothing. Staff will donate everything received to Michigan Ability Partners.

As an added bonus, anyone who brings in a receipt from a Depot Town business dated 12/7/2019 gets a free cup of coffee or hot cocoa! Enjoy some holiday cheer at the Freighthouse, and support our wonderful business community in one evening of fun.

This event is completely free and open to the public. To help offset costs, the Friends of the Ypsilanti Freighthouse will be selling Hyperion Coffee and cups of hot cocoa for anyone who needs a little extra sugar or caffeine to get through December.
