The Caring Place is pleased to announce it was voted by its community as the Best Place to Give/Volunteer in Georgetown for the 10th consecutive year! This honor comes just in time for this community-based and community-supported organization to encourage local philanthropy on Giving Tuesday.
Executive Director Ginna O’Connor shares, “The Caring Place was recently voted as the Best Place to Volunteer/Give for the 10th consecutive year. This speaks volumes about how our community supports the work of The Caring Place. We hope our supporters will remember this as they make holiday donations this year, too. Our annual fundraiser, Deep in the Heart of Caring and shopping event, Sweets, Treats & Trees were canceled leaving us to rely on monetary donations to make up that loss.” This loss in fundraising events leaves The Caring Place encouraging its supporters to participate in online fundraising opportunities like Giving Tuesday.
What is Giving Tuesday? According to GivingTuesday.org, “Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.”
