Giving Tuesday Now is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled December 1, 2020 Giving Tuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The goal is to come together to drive a spike of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
At Bethesda Mission, we work to serve our community year-round, but they need our help now more than ever. There are more people without jobs and income and more people on the street with no place to go. The biggest thing we need right now is food – we serve over 500 meals a day, and during this time we have been serving breakfast and dinner in a curbside to-go format for the safety of our staff and guests. We suggest a donation of $100. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by the end of the day May 5, 2020.
This event is powered by social media so stay tuned in the upcoming weeks to learn how Bethesda is uplifting men, women and children during this time! Don’t miss our Facebook Live stream on the 5th as we talk to our ministry directors and learn how your support is making a difference in the community. We will also be sharing via Twitter and Instagram.
