Assistance League of Northern Virginia will join other charitable organizations throughout the world that are participating in GIVING TUESDAY, on November 29. Giving Tuesday is an annual international effort to promote generosity. Started in 2012 as a day to disconnect from the end-of-the-year-purchasing frenzy and instead focus on doing good in local communities, Giving Tuesday has become a movement that encourages activism and kindness.
We rely on the kindness of our friends and supporters to help us continue providing food, new clothing, shoes, books, and reading assistance to some of the most vulnerable elementary school students and their families in our community. We are grateful that we have been able to resume most of our philanthropic programs since the pandemic.
Early giving starts on November 15 and until then, we encourage everyone to reflect on how you can best contribute to building a better community. Everyone can make a difference. Every act of generosity counts!
