Meaning of Colors is doing so with its pop-up shop.

The non-profit organization strives to provide resources and services for individuals that are struggling academically, personally, and professionally.


Started by Iryonna Hogan,

"Meaning In Colors' vision is to provide young adults with quality services, that will help each member reach their full potential in all aspects of life so that barriers can be broken and young adults can exceed the expectations of being a productive citizen."

This is not the first time that Meaning of Colors has been giving back to the community. Their turkey giveaway was a big hit with LINC UP.

With the Christmas season coming up quickly, Meaning In Colors wanted to make Christmas a little more affordable for people within the Grand Rapids community.

They have already begun taking donations through their pop-ups at different bus spots and by giving families free toys and other things that are essential.

Hogan told Fox 17 about her hopes for this pop-up shop and gift-giving.

"I'm really hoping that we get a lot of donations from this. If we don't, I am going to make it happen regardless. And so it's just something that really is on my heart to do."

The official gift-giving pop-up shop will be happening on December 17th. As of right now, there are no further details.
