Giving Tuesday — created in 1992 by the 92nd Street Y in New York and the United Nations Foundation — is an annual global day of giving, observed the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It’s an opportunity to help your community. Whether it’s your time, donation, gift or being an advocate. As a community, we have an opportunity to help those in need.
