What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a national online giving campaign occurring on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to begin the giving season and give back to the causes and issues that matter to you. This year, #GivingTuesday takes place on December 1, 2020.
By participating in #GivingTuesday, you can spread awareness and give back. Your donation to Emmaus will allow us to continue to ensure a high quality of life for men and women with disabilities in the greater St. Louis community!
How Will You Show Up?
At Emmaus, our Direct Support Professionals continue to show up for the women and men of Emmaus, day after day. That’s just who they are. And they make Emmaus who we are. And right now, we need your support. Emmaus needs you to show up for them.
In this era of Covid-19, it is clear that quality matters more than ever. For people with disabilities, it is more important than ever to know that someone will always be there when they need it most. That’s what your gift will do today.
