WE ARE THROWING A PARTY! & the only way to enter is to DONATE!

What is Giving Tuesday?

You've heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, but do you know about Giving Tuesday? The Tuesday after Thanksgiving becoming 'Giving Tuesday' began as a simple idea in 2012; a day that encourages people to do good. It has evolved into a "global generosity movement" that focuses on the power of giving to transform local communities across the world.

Why is it important?

We want to help support a culture of generosity in our community. While the holiday season is a time of great joy for many, it can also be a time of uncertainty for those less fortunate.

How are we helping?

We're throwing a party, and the cost of admission is DONATIONS! All donated items will be delivered to the Hilton Foodshelf to support our community this holiday season.
