Giving Tuesday Seeks Donations for Non-Profits

Day of giving allows philanthropy after Thanksgiving shopping weekend

Across the planet today, many gave to their favorite cause in support of giving Tuesday.

More than 40,000 organizations took part in the event from 71 different countries.

One of those groups involved was the Northland’s Damiano Center. The center serves the less fortunate including having a soup kitchen.

“A day like Giving Tuesday, having a special giving day kind of like Give to the Max Day that was a couple weeks ago, it really sheds light on the importance of philanthropy and being able to get things done in our community,” said Katherine Mueller, development director for the program.

About 20 different organizations in the Northland participated in the event. To find out more about the program, visit
