GivingTuesday, taking place December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.
There are countless causes and organizations worthy of our support.
Close to home, Friends of Golden Pond, has secured $5,500 in matching grants to help them purchase Camp Golden Pond. Camp Golden Pond has been home to our service unit camporees for years. For the year that Camp Golden Pond was closed, we struggled to find a comparable facility that lent itself well to the types of events we want to host. If you have attended one of the camporees at Camp Golden Pond this past year, or are planning on attending one of the camporees planned for next year, please consider Friends of Golden Pond on December 3rd. Your help in securing the future of our camp will be felt for years to come.
