    GivingTuesday (#GT), is a global day of generosity happening on November 29, 2022

    GivingTuesday inspired hundreds of thousands of people around the world to celebrate generosity. People in the US gave 2.7 Billion Dollars, offering hope, volunteering their time, and donating to causes important to them. But it doesn't stop there. #GivingTuesday is the kick-off of the Holiday Giving Season. We hope you'll keep local organizations in mind when considering your holiday giving.

    *Amherst VA Gives (#AmherstVAGives) is our local arm of GivingTuesday. Our goal is to bring awareness to causes, groups, and non-profits that are helping our community all year long.

    ***To maximize our impact, we need volunteers!***

    Are you a great planner and goal setter? A "rally the troops" kind of person? Perhaps a social media influencer, photographer, or videographer? If so, AmherstVAGives Needs You!

    If you're willing to give an hour a week (perhaps a bit more during the weeks of November 20 and 27) we would love to have you join us! For more information, please call Penny at 434.946.0990 or email amherstvagives2022@gmail.com.

    If you represent an organization or cause and would like to partner with #AmherstVAGives, please email Penny at amherestvagives2022@gmail.com. 

    We hope you’ll join us in celebrating #AmherstVAGives
