Salvation Army taking part in nationwide #Giving Tuesday

Local News

We had a day to give thanks and now it’s time to give back.

You are encouraged to give something to your favorite charity to jump-start the holiday giving season.
By using the #Giving Tuesday on social media,  you can also help spread the word.
The Red Cross has a holiday catalog where you can find gifts for your loved ones.
Your donations stay local so there is help available during a disaster.
Also to celebrate this year,  the Salvation Army has their red kettles at several locations throughout the area. You can also text a donation to create your own digital red kettle.

Last year, the one-day giving promotion raised more than $300 M in 24 hours nationally.
But if you’re more focused on getting back in the form of a tax break come April, you may want to take a look at the new rules from the tax cuts and jobs act of 2017.
According to a study from the American Enterprise Institute, charitable giving is expected to decrease by $17 billion this year because of the new tax law.
