As the holidays quickly approach, Community Missions is gearing up for its third annual #GivingTuesday event – and it’s inviting the Niagara community to catch the giving spirit.
Occurring this year on Dec. 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events “Black Friday,” Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. The event inspires people to take collaborative 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.
Community Missions has provided the Niagara community with a wide range of vital services since 1925. In 2014, CMI provided more than 76,900 meals and 10,000 nights of care within its crisis services programs. Additional agency programs serve adults and youth with psychiatric disabilities, parolees, at-risk youth and other underserved populations in both residential and recovery-oriented settings.
