Strauss Family Uptown Pawn Fund


Our lifelong friends, Michael, Abby, Zoe and Benny are facing a devastating situation.  Their businesses, Uptown Pawn and P-Town Kicks, were completely destroyed in the riots and looting in Minneapolis.  





Michael has supported his community for the past 20+ years and his son, Benny, has been at his side for the past 3 years.  For those of you who don't know Michael, he is a man who is generous to a fault.  He gives endlessly to his family and friends, as well to his customers who face adversity.  He has given his time, money, energy, spirit and mentorship to so many.  Now is the time for him to receive.

The last worry that they should have to consider now is covering family expenses as they grieve the loss of what they had built and rebuild their business.

We asked that you share this widely in the Minneapolis business community, the St. Louis Park community, the pawn and jewelry community, the sneaker community and with your friends and loved ones.

Thank you.

Matt, Alex & Eli
