Today is #GivingTuesday. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses and communities around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. After scooping up deals in Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, Giving Tuesday focuses on giving back.
The Friends of Oakley – A Community Foundation have, since 2008, been providing a Christmas Basket to Oakley families in need of assistance this holiday season. The basket includes a holiday meal with a turkey and other perishable and non-perishable food items and wrapped presents for all children 17 and under. Since inception we estimate that we have served over 2500 families and close to 10,000 children. Your help in this event is needed – can you make a contribution today to support us? Donate
The holiday was created in 2012 by 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation to offset the scramble to snap up deals post-Thanksgiving.
