How Does It Work?
Each Monday during that month, guests to the Diary Market will be able to add $1 (or more!) to their order to be contributed to the month’s designated community group. Market Monday donations will be totaled at end of the month and  each merchant will write a check made out to the charity or non-profit; the Diary Market will collect these checks and present them to the community group.
