Tuesday, December 1 is Giving Tuesday, a day when people around the world celebrate the holidays by giving back to help others. Giving Tuesday unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world.

This year, please consider making a difference for local families and individuals in need by donating to UWNCM—for Giving Tuesday, we are seeking to raise $3,000 for our Community Impact initiative, a fund that helps people meet basic needs in times of crisis.

Your gift will help provide emergency shelter, food and prevention of utility shut-offs, ensuring that community members who are struggling can stay fed and warm when facing financial hardship, severe weather and more.

To donate, text GIVEUNITEDNCM to 50155 or visit https://uwncm.org/donate/. Please be sure to select Community Impact on the donation page.

The UWNCM Community Impact fund is a lifeline for many people in North Central Massachusetts. In fiscal year 2019, thanks to generous supporters like you, we were able to fund 22 nights of lodging for 94 people and helped 31,690 individuals and families with heat and utility service, food assistance and COVID-19 relief.

After the fast pace of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to make positive changes for others. Please celebrate this global day of giving by supporting UWNCM!
