On December 1, 2020, Caring Communities participated in GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that aims to create a more just and generous world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 and began as a day that simply encouraged people to do good. Over time, that simple idea grew into a global movement that inspires communities to donate to businesses and organizations with their time, money, and gratitude.
This year GivingTuesday coincided with World AIDS Day on December 1, 2020. World AIDS Day takes place as an annual, worldwide event uniting people to fight for a generation free of HIV, show support for people living with HIV, and commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
Despite the regularly changing circumstances of COVID-19, our community came together on GivingTuesday to support local organizations like Caring Communities. We are grateful to those who helped spread the word about our mission to help eliminate HIV stigma and donated to help support our clients throughout northeast and north central Pennsylvania who are living with HIV.
Donations received by Caring Communities always go toward client care and provide them with items and services our regular grants cannot cover such as prescription eyeglasses, over-the-counter medications and vitamins, dental services, help covering essential home repairs like furnaces or water heaters, and much more.
If you are interested in donating to Caring Communities, we can accept donations via PayPal on our website. You can also check out our Amazon Wish List which has basic items our clients are regularly in need of.
