Please join us for Giving Tuesday on December 3, 2019!


Please join us for our annual “Brown Bag Challenge” as part of Giving Tuesday on December 3, 2019. This global day of giving is recognized worldwide as the first day of the giving season and it’s a wonderful way to give back and help those in need across Bruce and Grey Counties. All funds raised will be invested back into our communities to address poverty and other social issues.

What is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, marking the first day of the giving season. It’s a day when individuals, charities and businesses join together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support local charities and non-profits. This year, Giving Tuesday is taking place on December 3rd. Everyone is invited to participate.
