Giving Tuesday – December 3, 2019

GIVING TUESDAY – A One Day National Campaign with a Local Internet Platform to make it possible for those who have, to “give back” to those who are serving, those who have not, to let them know you care.

On “GIVING TUESDAY,” December 3, 2019,  you are invited to focus your year-end giving on specific nonprofit agencies (e.g., Christian Shelter) in our community that serve the hurting poor and homeless, by making a special financial gift on One Special Day, in your own home or office, on your own computer, in one “fell swoop.”

The internet platform is provided and managed expertly by the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.  The name of the platform you go to is  Christian Shelter is on the list of agencies for which your gift can be designated.  A gift of $44.25 will provide a clean, safe family room with comfortable beds, a bathroom with shower, food, clothing, practical and spiritual guidance for a homeless family for one day.  For $309.75 they are able to stay in that room for a whole week, and for $1,239.00 for a month, about the time it will take Mom to find work and a permanent home. 

GOOD NEWS: We have received a “matching gift” of $1600.00.  That means the first $1600.00 donated to Christian Shelter, Inc. through the website on Giving Tuesday will be matched dollar for dollar (doubled).  Please don’t miss this opportunity.
