National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. This is a time for us all to start to think about what we are thankful for, a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, and work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger or homelessness.
This Giving Tuesday, if you give $200 you get the early bird admission price to the LegUp’s 3rd annual Benefit Dinner, “A Night of Hope.” We want to give our homeless neighbors a LegUp, and you can catalyst that change!
Giving Tuesday is a global day of celebration dedicated to helping others through the gift of a donation, your time, goods and your voice. The #GivingTuesday movement counterbalances the increasing commercialization around the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. If you are a nonprofit organization looking to plan a media blitz around the date, you will need to know when the date falls on the calendar every year in order to appropriately plan your efforts.
