Coming Up: Giving Tuesday

The weather is getting colder. The holiday season is just a few weeks away. Many of us are making plans to celebrate Thanksgiving with family…and then celebrate all of the great shopping deals available on Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

This year, why not keep the fun going on Tuesday?

Mark your calendar for December 3, 2019 – Giving Tuesday!

Launched in 2012, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for individuals and groups around the world to join in giving back to their communities. And investing in our community is exactly what we do at NEEDS – whether we’re providing food to the less fortunate, or offering financial assistance to keep local families in warm homes.

Please partner with NEEDS this Giving Tuesday!

How you can help:

1. Donate food and supplies to our pantry. We are always in need of nonperishable food, as well as personal care items like shampoo, deodorant, and feminine care products. You can drop off your donation on Giving Tuesday from 9:00-4:00. (Can’t make it that day? No problem – donations can be dropped off at Kenwood Baptist Church any Monday-Thursday.)

2. Share your time. NEEDS is open to serve our community every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00-1:00. We need volunteers to staff our pantry and desk each week, greeting our clients and fulfilling requests.

3. Make a financial donation. Your contribution on Giving Tuesday will help us to support our community throughout the year.
