Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to directly help frontline workers and people experiencing homelessness so they can access what they need to make it safely through the pandemic and the coldest months of the year.
This Giving Tuesday, local organizations serving people experiencing homelessness need our help. The cold winter months ahead pose an extra risk to people experiencing homelessness and the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the situation. Frontline organizations in the homeless sector are under a great deal of strain and could use your help.
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to donate in a way that works for you, whether it’s financial, volunteering, or sharing their efforts and campaigns with your network.
