#GivingTuesday – Savers Donation
November 29, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Black Friday… Cyber Monday… #GivingTuesday.
Join Families Network of Western CT, Inc., in a call to action that will change the calendar and help make history. We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving – when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together for #GivingTuesday, a movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the holiday season that we are proud to be part of.
The Savers family of stores is a for-profit, global thrift retailer offering great quality, gently used clothing, accessories and household goods. Their business model of purchasing, reselling and recycling gives communities a smart way to shop and keeps more than 650 million pounds of used goods from landfills each year. They also help more than 120 nonprofit organizations by paying them for donated goods, which supports their vital community programs and services.
For our part, Families Network will be hosting a Savers Donation Fund Drive on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 as a demonstration of how we, and others in the community, can give and become involved. Additional information on #GivingTuesday can be found on their website, www.givingtuesday.org.
