Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, is coming up on November 30. In our corner of the world, this is the day to prove the power of giving in our region.
It’s time to be counted among those who are doing what’s needed and for all of us to give all we can. Join SHARE Omaha on November 30 to power #GivingTuesday402 in the Omaha metro and #GivingTuesday712 in Southwest Iowa, giving to hundreds of local nonprofits and strengthening our communities.
As presenting sponsor of #GivingTuesday402, Core Bank invites your business, family and you personally to join in giving your all to our community. John Sorrell, president and CEO of Core Bank said, “When it comes to overcoming the challenges of 2020, Core Bank is striving to be so much more than a bank. We are creating a better future for our families and small businesses. Core Bank is all in – with our dollars and with our service – for the good of the Omaha metro.”
The legion of Do Gooders is growing as more individuals, families and businesses step up and declare they will do good for Giving Tuesday.
Across the metro, you are pledging to contribute an act of real-life good – volunteering with LFS 24 Hours of Impact, donating and surprising someone with kindness. We can’t wait to see you put positivity out in to our city, and watch it take over.
We asked, how will YOU do good on Dec. 3?
Some of you have said:
“(I’ll) help a stranger. It doesn’t take much to be polite and extend a helping hand.” – Helena
“Make donations to my favorite local nonprofits” – Karen
