Giving Tuesday held to support local nonprofits

Local News

Area charities are hoping that you might have a few dollars left over after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.

That’s because today is Giving Tuesday, a day when charities are hoping to receive contributions to help those in need this holiday season.

Giving Tuesday began in 2012 when a YMCA in New York City joined up with the United Nations Foundation to start a joint effort to raise money for a number of organizations.

That spirit has grown into the national movement to fund-raise on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year.
