SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Many Siouxland organizations are participating in what is commonly known as GivingTuesday.
Held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, the organization GivingTuesday asks people to give back to their community by giving your time, money, goods, or voice to causes you care about.
They offer some ideas to consider.
- Share kindness with your neighbors.
- Volunteer virtually or share your talents
- Give your voice to a cause that matters to you
- Show gratitude to healthcare workers, service providers, and other essential workers who are making sure we still have the services we rely on, even at risk to their own health.
- Discover a local fundraiser, community drive, or coordinated event to join others in your area or with your same interests in giving back — they need your help. Search for opportunities here
- Give to your favorite cause or a fundraiser to help those in need.
