Keep the spirit of #GivingTuesday alive
Menasha — While the actual day of #GivingTuesday has passed, the season of giving has not.
Financial donations can still be accepted for 2014 by Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin.
Coinciding with Thanksgiving and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday inspired people to take action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Goodwill NCW, which served more than 67,000 people in 2013 and is on pace to exceed 70,000 in 2014, seeks contributions to increase the scope of services and programs that help people across its 35-county footprint.
#GivingTuesday, a first–of-its-kind effort to harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners — charities, families, businesses and individuals — transformed how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. And in the holiday season (and spirit), there’s still time to make that difference.
From our Vocational Support Services to Early Intervention Services programs, from financial counseling services such as FISC (Financial Information & Service Center), Payment Partner, Prosperity Center and VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance), from Goodwill Grows (small-form agriculture and community gardening) to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Services and more, Goodwill NCW makes significant efforts to create a better world for all people across our footprint.
Donors can make a monetary contribution to supplement existing programs and to enhance potential for new programs and services across the state. To donate to Goodwill NCW:

“There’s never a bad time to donate to Goodwill NCW,” said Dan Flannery, vice president of community relations for the organization.
“When you consider the scope and the depth of our organization’s commitment to helping people with barriers find a better life, we hope it’s clear that an online donation can be a life-changer for any of our neighbors in north central Wisconsin.”
