First & Main is proud to partner with NEOPAT (Northeast Ohio Foundation for Patriotism) this holiday season for two special promotions to support military families in our area:



Help us “Stuff The Humvee”!

Bring new, unwrapped toys to First & Main during the Holiday Walk on Sunday, December 3 from 12 – 5 p.m. and help us “Stuff the Humvee” with toys for military families in need this holiday season.  Uniformed reservists will be on site to accept the donations and families are invited to participate in the activities on site that day including: horse drawn carriage rides, caroling, a hot cocoa bar, crafts and the opportunity to send special messages to our troops!

Toys will also be accepted at the Hudson Visitor Center and Gift Shop located at 27 E Main Street from November 16 through December 4, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. starting November 26.


Join us for Operation Snowflake!!

Now through December 3, First & Main Hudson will be collecting snowflakes with holiday and inspirational messages written on them for active military members. The snowflakes will be distributed via the Northeast Ohio Foundation for Patriotism, (NEOPAT), in an effort to bring holiday cheer to the brave men and women that are protecting our freedom around the world.

We invite all families, schools and community groups throughout Northeast Ohio to join in this operation and create snowflakes with messages. We have set a goal of 5,000 snowflake messages and encourage participants to create more than one!

There will be a snowflake collection boxes at area merchants including the Hudson Visitor Center and Gift Shop through December 16. There will also be a snowflake station during the Hudson Holiday Walk on Sunday, December 3 from 12 to 5 p.m. on the First & Main green.

Help brighten the holidays for our troops with a one of a kind snowflake message!
