Hello BGCA Family!

Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Last year, this world day of giving raised over $116 million online for nonprofits by tapping into the holiday giving season. Held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year Giving Tuesday is on November 29.

 

We are thrilled to be participating in this giving event through the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan, and hope you will support The Boys and Girls Club of Alpena by making a donation! The services we provide to our local area are vital to our community, and on November 29 there is potential to create a huge amount of support for our organization in a 24-hour period.

 

How can you help? Visit the Community Foundation’s website at www.cfnem.org/givingtuesday on November 29 from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.. Look for The Boys and Girls Club of Alpena and click on it to make your Giving Tuesday gift. Then, tell your family and friends!

Wishing you all the best in this season of giving!
