Giving Tuesday is for Giving Back!
The Tuesday following Thanksgiving, UCM celebrates #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. The idea is simple: donate gifts or raise money or volunteer, then spread the word by using #GivingTuesday in your social media posts.
How can you "Be Part of the Heart" to support UCM on #GivingTuesday on Nov. 28? Here are some ideas:
Dine out the day before for UCM Benefit Day at Mamma's Kitchen:
Our neigborhood restaurant is helping us kickoff the season of giving on Mon., Nov. 27! Take a break from CyberMonday to dine in or take out at Mamma's Kitchen. Mention UCM and a percentage of your purchase will benefit families in need!
Donate a gift to our UCM Holiday Gift Room: Due date for donations is Friday, Dec. 11. Drop off a gift, or it's easy to shop our UCM Amazon.com Holiday Room WishList -- your purchases will auto ship directly to UCM! And there's still time to organize your holiday gift or food collection drive: email Volunteer Coordinator Danica at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance or to request bins for your drive.
Start your holiday shopping at the UCM Back Porch Thrift Store for unique treasures at great prices. 100% of store proceeds stay in our community to benefit people in need. Open until 6:30 pm on Nov. 28 (and every day!).
Use igive.com when shopping online to support UCM during the holidays -- and all year long! Get set up once with your email address and a percentage of your purchases at 1,800+ shopping sites will automatically benefit UCM. Get started shopping here >>
Make a year-end financial gift early to UCM to support our programs that equip, educate, and empower people to improve their lives.
