Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. This year, Giving Tuesday will kick off the charitable holiday season by inspiring people to give back on November 29, 2022.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on Giving Tuesday. Every act of generosity counts. Giving Tuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world, motivates thousands of people to volunteer at organizations that make a difference in their neighborhoods, and gets people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them; encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
When you support the Food Bank this Giving Tuesday, your gift can have DOUBLE the IMPACT with a matching campaign! Over the last decade, Genisys Credit Union has been a valued partner in the fight against hunger, providing over $81,000 in support. These funds have made a significant impact on the lives of those facing hunger throughout eastern Michigan.
Many households are struggling to make ends meet as they face higher prices on groceries, gas, utilities and more. Sometimes, even the basic essentials are out of budget. When the income doesn’t cover their bills, families are left with tough choices, but food is not a choice. Our neighbors in need are able to turn to food pantries and soup kitchens to fill the gaps and provide for their families. With support from community members, the Food Bank’s network of hunger relief agencies stand ready to meet the need, stocked with fresh produce, dairy products, meat, proteins and pantry staples.
To join Genisys Credit Union in assisting our neighbors in need AND stretch your contribution twice as far, make your donation at www.fbem.org/donate-fb/ on November 29th!
