#GivingTuesday: Help out LIFTT this Holiday Season!
November 28, 2017
Living Independently for Today and Tomorrow (LIFTT) is joining with non-profit organizations across the globe in participating in #GivingTuesday. Held annually on the Tuesday after US Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events “Black Friday and “Cyber Monday,” Giving Tuesday is designed to kick off the winter holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their communities and to give back in impactful ways.
“Despite having been around since 1988, so many times we hear from consumers and community members that LIFTT and its services are “a well kept secret.” In this era of reduced federal, state and even foundation support LIFTT needs this to change and we hope by participating in #GivingTuesday we can begin to reintroduce ourselves to the communities we serve;” said LIFTT executive director Jennifer Cleland.
