Today is #GivingTuesday, a global initiative encouraging people from all over the world to connect about their “unselfie” work with others via social media. It’s a special day all about supporting institutions you believe in and
making a difference in the lives of people you care about. Organizations are encouraged to find ways to contribute their communities, in ways that each finds meaningful. #GivingTuesday takes place each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
On #GivingTuesday, the School of Communication and the Arts at Marist College will be working to give comfort – in the form of Chemotherapy Comfort Kits. These kits will be donated to Vassar Brothers Medical Center’s Dyson Center for Cancer Care and Sparrow’s Nest. These kits can have a variety of items in them, from warm knitted caps to fleece blankets to fragrance-free hand lotion to hard candy. We are very excited to make creating these kits our project this year. You can find more information on the School of Communication and the Arts #GivingTuesday website.
Your Marist Red Fox family is another great reason to participate in #GivingTuesday. The gift you make to the Marist Fund helps keep the Marist experience accessible for so many of our students and preserves and strengthens the essence of all that is Marist. Your tax-deductible gift can make an incredible difference in providing scholarships to deserving students, supporting faculty curriculum and research, strengthening the value of a Marist degree, and helping Red Foxes find their place in the world.
