Faith Community Health (FAiTH) will host an outdoor #GivingTuesday charity event on December 1, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at Faith Community Health clinic in Branson, complete with local blood drive, toy drive, a bit of holiday cheer and a visit from the man himself…Santa!
#GivingTuesday is held annually and is widely recognized as the official kick-off to the holiday giving season. This day of giving inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
“During this time of health, economic and unemployment uncertainty we must join together and seek opportunities to support one another. Even as so many face financial concerns, generosity is not about the size of a gift. Every act of kindness is not only a beacon of hope, it can make a life-changing difference,” said Michele Dean, Director of Charitable Giving for FAiTH.
Faith Community Health is offering friends of FAiTH in surrounding communities several ways to give this holiday season:
