Giving Tuesday Update
November 26, 2017
By now you have probably seen and heard about “Giving Tuesday Northeast Michigan”! Last year, this world day of giving helped our local Community Foundation raise over $50,000 for nonprofits in our community by tapping into the holiday giving season. Held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year “Giving Tuesday” is on November 28-just two days from today!!
As you know, South Bay will be participating in this year’s giving event through the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan, and hope you will support South Bay by donating! Our current activities include extending the Alpena Bi-Path from Island Drive to South Partridge Point Road and development of a welcome center and park near the 45th Parallel. We have identified two different routes for the Bi-Path Extension and a parcel of private property near the 45th Parallel of which the owner is interested in selling! The services we provide to Northeast Michigan will benefit our local citizens and increase tourism. On November 28 there is potential to create a huge amount of support for our organization in a 24-hour period.
You can help by visiting the Community Foundation’s website at www.cfnem.org/givingtuesday on November 28 from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Look for South Bay and click on it to make your Giving Tuesday gift. And if you’re on Facebook, please look for our posts about Giving Tuesday and like, comment, and share to help us spread the word about this great opportunity to give where we live!
Wishing you all the best in this season of giving!
