Koinonia is proud to be a part of this global celebration of giving! #GivingTuesday is a global movement that began in 2012 and has continued to inspire generosity and kindness in communities around the world. The goal is to give people and organizations the opportunity to transform their communities by giving of their time, talent, or financial resources. No matter how much or how little you have to give, every effort makes a difference! Save the date for this year’s Giving Tuesday: November 30, 2021.
How can you participate?
Give Time – Contact your local Koinonia office to ask about volunteer opportunities.
Give Dollars – Make a donation online and help us continue our mission of bringing hope and healing to the families and foster youth we serve. Koinonia is a non-profit 501©(3) organization and classified as a public charity, so all donations are tax deductible.
Give Goods – Donating new clothing, toys, gift cards, backpacks, and suitcases are all great ways to support foster youth! Contact your local Koinonia office to find out more. Ask about our Angel Tree program!
Give Kindness – Do you know a foster family who could use a helping hand? Or perhaps you know of a family who is currently under a lot of stress? Reach out to them and provide support in any way you can.
- Bring a meal
- Offer emotional support
- Become a respite care provider
- Ask them what type of help they would appreciate most
Give Together – Get your friends and family involved! Organize a toy drive, “chalk” your neighborhood, host a community conversation, or volunteer with a small group. You could be the spark of change and positivity your community needs!
