This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Hooktown Holiday's is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this November 29.
As you know, Hooktown Holiday's is a "grass-roots" Warren community service organization born in a small neighborhood from a simple idea. The idea... "Let's find a way to give to help those in need, focus on a singular mission and let's make it as easy as possible" By the end of 2016 you, our wonderful supporters, will have given over $60,000 back to the Warren community in just 3 years. And, every penny you give, is given back to the community. "Giving Tuesday" is the perfect time to consider those organizations that meet your own personal standard of where you want to help. We hope you will include Hooktown Holiday's.
