Michele’s Volunteer View: Prep Your #GivingTuesday Volunteer Plans!

Giving Tuesday is a simple idea. It’s a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season. 

On December 3, 2019, join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community. Luckily, the DRI Foundation offers a great opportunity to do all three by participating in our annual DRI Foundation Volunteer Day during DRI2020. By volunteering, you can give something back, make a difference to the people around you, and learn more about issues affecting the community.

Volunteer: Volunteer Day at DRI2020 in Savannah is on Saturday, February 29, 2020. This year the DRI Foundation is offering two morning half-day opportunities:

Visit conference.drii.org/ to register. If you have any questions about Volunteerism, contact me at: mostler@drii.org or 917-796-5571.

If you’re not able to take part in Volunteer Day this year there are other ways to support a great cause for Giving Tuesday.

Make a Monetary Donation: No donation is too small, and all donations make a huge impact for the Foundation in helping us to achieve our mission. You can donation online now at: https://drii.org/donation/

Donate a Gift: The DRI Foundation is seeking donations of water, soda, and snacks for Volunteer Day at DRI2020. If you or your organization can help with this effort, please contact me!

Share Your Voice: Help us spread the word about the DRI Foundation.
