Activities also planned in conjunction with #GivingTuesday include a chance for folks to decorate their own tzedakah box, story time for children, a stamp craft activity, a sing-a-long and acting out The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

Of course there will be a nosh for all to enjoy.

Part of a global movement of giving back for the greater good, #GivingTuesday volunteers are needed to help make phone calls to ask for the community’s support. Volunteers can sign up now for available shifts for the entire family at Available shifts are 9-11 a.m., 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

About #GivingTuesday

Held on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on their end-of-the-year giving.

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y in New York and has become a worldwide event, harnessing the power of social media to inspire and transform how people think, talk and participate in the giving season. It also brings together the collective power of nonprofits, civic organizations and businesses as well as families and individuals to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

For more information about the #GivingTuesday event at the Glazer JCC, contact Michelle Gallagher at (813) 739-1687 or
