Community Involvement

Giving Back is a Part of Who We Are

Over the years, we’ve worked with a wide variety of charitable organizations and participated in many local events—all with the express aim of helping the community that we love so much. We invite you to learn more about our recent community involvement below.

St. Paul Winter Carnival

Hamernick’s has been a long time supporter of the Coolest Celebration on Earth, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. Our owner, Ted Natus, was King Boreas the LXVII in 2013 and since then has gone on to support the 2017 Ice Palace, many Royal Family members over the years, and various events throughout the Celebration. We’re excited to be back in 2024! Hail BOREAS! 💙

On Halloween night, 2021, thousands of dollars worth of bicycle tools, computers, and supplies were stolen from Bikes 4 Kids—a Ham Lake, MN-based organization that works tirelessly to help kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to those most in need. Hearing this tragic story, Hamernick’s VP Troy Natus delivered a check the very next day for $13,000 to their Executive Director, Tia, to help cover the costs.

Troy’s Bench Memorial

In January 2022, Hamernick’s VP Troy Natus’ life was tragically cut short. To honor the life and legacy of their son, owners Ted and Lynn Natus sponsored multiple memorial benches at the MN State Fair, with the proceeds benefitting the MN State Fair Foundation. Every summer, Troy’s friends, family, and former coworkers stop by the benches to remember him.

Habitat for Humanity

In 2022, while in the process of reorganizing our warehouse on Rice Street in St. Paul, our team identified a large surplus of flooring materials. Recognizing that it was all still in pristine condition, Hamernick’s contacted the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. We’re proud to say we donated two truckloads of carpet for their efforts to help families build and improve places to call home.
