#GivingTuesdayNow Happening May 5th

April 24th, 2020

#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving traditionally held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, will soon launch #GivingTuesdayNow which will take place on Tuesday, May 5th . It will be a day to not only give back, but unify and respond to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. This event is set to spark an increase in grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

Since the onset of COVID-19, The Arc of Essex County has spent nearly $150,000 to ensure the safety and well being of our residents and staff. As quickly as we procure these products, they are used as we aggressively follow Centers for Disease Control guidance to minimize risk of exposure and maintain healthy, clean homes.

With the end of this pandemic likely weeks or months away and the ongoing need for these products, now, more than ever before, we need your help. Make a donation to The Arc of Essex County’s COVID-19 relief efforts through Facebook on #GivingTuesdayNow or through The Arc’s website: www.arcessex.org/covid19relief.
