What’s Giving Tuesday & How You Can Help (VIDEO)
Giving Tuesday is a day of giving to non-profit organizations or those in need recognized all over the world following Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
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!
One awesome way to give to others is through the 44th Annual Christmas Wish. This program opened on Monday, November 23rd, at the Mall 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 the front entrance at Towne Square Mall. We have so many families this year and we need lots of help.
There are many local non-profits in Owensboro that you can give to... here are the links for each!
“KidsFirstGivingTuesday” was developed by the Foundation for Daviess County Public Schools in conjunction with DCPS Family Resource and Youth Service Center Coordinators to raise awareness of keeping local donations for Giving Tuesday within the Owensboro and Daviess County community.
#KidsFirstGivingTuesday was created last year to raise awareness and funding for removing barriers to education for many of the 11,800 students in need who attend 18 Daviess County Public Schools.
If you have a non-profit that you would like added to the list please let us know.
