In honor of today, #GivingTuesday, we are spotlighting various philanthropic efforts in our various communities, all of which could use your support
For those who do not know, #GivingTuesday was started to inspire positive change and community engagement worldwide. Taking place each year at the start of the holiday season, it acts as a reminder to help those who are less fortunate during a time often associated with indulgence and materialism.
