New Community Corporation has joined #GivingTuesday, an international charitable giving campaign that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities by supporting organizations like New Community, which has been committed “to helping residents of inner cities improve the quality of their lives to reflect individual God-given dignity and personal achievement” in Newark, New Jersey, and neighboring cities, since 1968.
Taking place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday will use the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. Your financial contribution to New Community can go towards supporting homeless families staying at our transitional living facility called Harmony House, stock the cupboards at our Emergency Food Pantry or help send a low income student to an academically rigorous college preparatory school through the Monsignor William J. Linder Scholarship Fund. You can also make a donation on behalf of or in memory of another person.
We are excited for you to partner with us at New Community to help build a brighter future for inner city residents. Join us on #Giving Tuesday—because shopping feels good, but giving feels better! Click here to donate.
