‘Tis the season for giving, especially on #GivingTuesday this Tuesday, November 27. #GivingTuesday started in 2012 and is a global giving movement fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
It follows shopping events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday on the following Tuesday. #GivingTuesday begins the charitable season when it’s the perfect time to get involved with your community and find organizations, charities and events to support.
Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 to go towards the purchase of a van for the maintenance team. Currently, the team of two utilize a van with no AC and is a little worse for wear.
Davis-Moore Auto Group is partnering with us to find the vehicle.
The maintenance team helps support each one of our 12 programs. Catholic Charities’ two right hand men, Richard and Jerry, travel between five different locations to complete tasks ranging from picking up pillow donations, moving furniture, lawn maintenance, moving program supplies to even hanging up a photo in a hallway.
Our maintenance team is really our spirit squad. It is a huge piece of the puzzle which is never given enough credit.
This year, we hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, November 27, #GivingTuesday for our #DriveToGive campaign.
We only have 24 hours to fundraise. We can’t do it without you!
