Now in its sixth year, #Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that happens on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The goal of this day is to make donations and/or volunteer time to organizations that help people in need. This giving event is fueled through social media and collaboration.

Here are 8 examples of FSL programs that your #GivingTuesday donations support:

  1. Partnerships, like the one with ASU and Help Heal Vets, for programs that help veterans find new purpose through creativity and recreational therapy.
  2. Keeping FSL’s food pantry stocked with food, cleaning supplies, and personal care items for seniors and adults with disabilities, who would otherwise do without because of limited income.
  3. Providing support programs for caregivers and their families, including seminars and free personalized care coordination.
  4. Ensuring affordable and safe housing for aging adults and adults with disabilities.
  5. Maintaining programs for making home repairs to keep seniors safe in their homes.
  6. Delivering meals to the homes of adults in need.
  7. Offering adult day programs that give families peace of mind that their loved ones are safe and active when they cannot be with them.
  8. Funding the Kindness Closet program to provide adults with disabilities with the medical equipment they need.
