Giving Tuesday

Between the extra helpings and extra items in the cart, you might forget the holidays aren’t actually about taking, but giving, and Giving Tuesday, celebrated on November 29th this year, provides a gateway into just that. In its fourth year, the new “holiday” of sorts offers a selfless response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday by encouraging charitable giving and highlighting worthy causes.

Please join the Clearwater Free Clinic as we begin the holiday giving season on #GivingTuesday, November 29th. Help us provide medical care for those in our community who can’t afford it.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 on #GivingTuesday. We want to challenge our community to give generously on this day that is designated to give to others.

With your gift, the Clearwater Free Clinic can provide comprehensive health care to these neighbors. Together, we can save lives.
