What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a worldwide online movement that kicks off the charitable season. This takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, in an effort to take a rest after the shopping weekend. This Tuesday, November 28, join thousands of people from around the world for one common purpose: to embrace generosity and give.
Why Syracuse Habitat for Humanity?
Your contribution helps build energy efficient, safe, and affordable homes for families in need. Habitat homes develop communities where our children can grow up in safe and healthy places that allow them to reach their full potential. Through shelter our partnering families build strength, stability, and self-reliance.
This Giving Tuesday, your contribution will help us continue working on our two houses on Hixon Avenue in the Eastwood area of Syracuse, NY. One house is intended for a disabled Veteran and their family.
