Saint John's Catholic Prep has joined Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Occurring this year on November 29th, Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the "giving season." This is a time when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Giving Tuesday inspires people to give back in impactful ways to non-profit organizations they support. This year, Saint John's Catholic Prep has set a goal to raise $10,000 and we are asking for your help. Every donation, no matter the amount, will help us reach our goal.
We teach our students about the importance of the power of giving, whether it be through their time or financial contribution. On Giving Tuesday, the junior class will be "giving back" by participating in their annual McElroy Day of Service by volunteering at the Frederick Rescue Mission, the Beacon House, and The Way Station. These students will be distributing items we collect during our cold-weather clothing drive.
Giving Tuesday is the perfect time for us to come together to show how powerful we can be as a community when we unite to give on one day!
The countdown to November 29th has begun, so look for updates on our website and social media. We hope that you will join us in making our 2nd annual Giving Tuesday a huge success!
