Giving Tuesday is a worldwide day of giving and awareness for non-profit organizations that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Here's how you can help locally.

WHAT IS GIVING TUESDAY?

This day kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. All non-profit organizations are truly in need this year more than ever as the pandemic has put a halt to almost any type of fundraising these organizations depend on for their yearly budget.

Everyone can become a part of Giving Tuesday whether you are an individual or an organization. There are lots of non-profit groups here in our community that depend solely on the kind hearts and generous donations of people just like you!

HELP CHILDREN OF THE TRI-STATE GET A VISIT FROM SANTA

Another absolutely amazing way to give to the children in the Tri-State is through the 45th Annual Christmas Wish. The program is up and running at the former Shoe Stop location in Towne Square North and will help to provide Christmas for thousands of our local tri-state families. If you would like to donate your time or money to Christmas Wish call us here at 270-926-9257 or please stop by. We have so many families this year and we need lots of help.

SUPPORT OUR LOCAL SCHOOLS
