Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Every year, Christmas time marks a season of giving and increased generosity. A group of pretty genius people decided to capitalize on that spirit by initiating Giving Tuesday last year. It’s a day dedicated to supporting charitable organizations. This year’s second annual Giving Tuesday took place on Dec. 3, following Cyber Monday. Don’t worry if you missed it. There is still plenty of time and many different ways to give more than a gift in wrapping paper.
Many organizations in our community survive on donations from people like us. While you can easily give a monetary gift online, these non-profits could also use supply donations and your time.
Organizations like the Blessed Table Food Pantry and the Guilford County Food Pantry listed non-perishable food items on their wish lists to continue serving families in the Greensboro community.
We all recognize the famous red kettles and clanging bells. Our local Salvation Army could use more volunteers to ring the bell. Just a couple hours of jolly greetings can make a big difference.
You could even donate your vehicle. Not as in give your car away, although you might be on to something there if you can afford it. However, we were thinking more along the lines of offering your trusty Honda to help non-profits transport food and other donation items.
Leave a comment below and let us at Vann York Honda know what charities you’ll be supporting during this season of giving.
