We’re constantly looking for ways to grow and engage the community in our important work. GivingTuesday gives us a unique opportunity to share our stories and ask our neighbors for support.
We invite you to mark your calendar for GivingTuesday on November 30 and join us in empowering women to overcome barriers to success on their journey to recovery. Read on to learn more.
What Is GivingTuesday?
If you haven’t heard about GivingTuesday, it’s a global day of giving that falls on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We all spend a day giving thanks for everything and everyone we have in our lives before dedicating three days to spending money and buying holiday gifts (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday). Finally, we spend a day giving back to our community through GivingTuesday.
This day is centered around doing good and building stronger communities. What better way to do just that than by giving to our mission? When our Loveladies reenter society as well-equipped women of God, they’re not just building a better life for themselves and their families—they’re also helping make our community stronger.
How Is The Lovelady Center Participating in GivingTuesday?
This year, we want to invite you to join us for this global day of giving! Anytime you support us—whether through financial gifts, volunteerism, or thrift store purchases/donations—you’re helping women rebuild their lives and walk forward with faith-driven hope for the future.
For GivingTuesday, we’re making a special request. We’ve recently been working to ensure that all of our clients have a heating and cooling unit in their rooms, and we still have over 130 to purchase. With cold weather fast approaching, this need is more urgent and timely than ever. We’re asking our donors to help us raise $20,000, so we can purchase heating and cooling units for fifty of our residents’ rooms. Every dollar helps—no matter how large or small.
We also encourage you to get your friends and family involved as well. Share on social media that you donated to our mission and ask your followers to join you!
