Cleveland (November 28, 2016) #GivingTuesday is held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and widely recognized holiday shopping days Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the season of giving and inspires people to give time, talent or treasure to charities and causes they are passionate about.
When you make a #GivingTuesday gift to United Way of Greater Cleveland on Tuesday, November 29, Medical Mutual of Ohio will match your gift up to $50,000.
“Community needs are most prevalent during the holiday season,” said United Way President and CEO August Napoli. “But at United Way, we know issues of poverty, hunger and under and unemployment occur all year long. That’s why you should dig deep and give this #GivingTuesday.”
#GivingTuesday donations are accepted online at www.GivingTuesdayCLE.org through midnight November 30.
Donations to United Way on #GivingTuesday, are invested in more than 120 local programs that address the effects of poverty. Your gift helps United Way strive to ensure families and individuals are healthy and financially stable; that our children are well educated and on the road to reaching their greatest potential; and our community members are provided the resources they need to become self-sufficient.
“Last year, very generous Clevelanders donated more than $17,000 for #GivingTuesday,” said Napoli. “And the generous team at Medical Mutual matched each gift which means our community raised over $34,670 for a single cause.”
