What is #GivingTuesday?
In its ninth year, #GivingTuesday is a global movement to celebrate giving back, whether it is your time, your talents or your donations.
#GivingTuesday is Tuesday, December 3 , 2019.
We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have an opportunity to give back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.
Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #GivingTuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds from around the world.
Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.
Do you have a few hours a week? A month? Can you volunteer your time? There are many opportunities for donating your time and talents. Just ask us.
Through our donor’s acts of giving, large and small, time, talents, goods and services or monetary donations, we have been able to give back, including but not limited to:
o MSCC Food Pantry and Produce Market
o Sewing Classes
o WeJoySing for children at no charge to participants
o Summer Lunch and activities for our youth
o After School Activities for our youth
o Open Gym for basketball, volleyball, boot camp and more
o Special and seasonal events for the community
With your help, we can continue to give, and celebrate community, on #GivingTuesday and beyond and continue to expand our outreach. Thanks for giving!!!
