You’ve probably already heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know that this Tuesday, November 29th is GivingTuesday? Everyone is encouraged to take a break from supporting their spending habits, and support their community on this global day of giving instead. Stop by the basement of the UCC to support Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness in London, the FIMSSC’s partner charity for the year. They are Canada’s only participatory homeless shelter and work incredibly hard to help people experiencing the crisis of homelessness in London. We will be collecting toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorant for their Santa Sack Donation Drive but any items you wish to donate will be greatly appreciated! We will also be selling toques for $10 and mittens for $20 with all proceeds going towards charity as well.
For more information about GivingTuesday or Unity Project, check out their websites below and of course, come visit us in the basement of the UCC on Tuesday!
Even if you cannot make it to our booth or donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorant for those in need, we encourage you to take part in GivingTuesday in some way. Spread kindness. @FIMSSCHARITY
