Giving Tuesday is a yearly day following Thanksgiving where people are encouraged to donate to their favorite charities.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 30th is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving to local organizations. This is a special day for The Center as we raise funds for our vital programs and services. We are excited to announce that all donations made now through tomorrow are being generously matched up to $10,000 by RICH'S Nightclub San Diego.
Tomorrow also represents the last day of National Youth Homelessness Month, a time to acknowledge youth experiencing homelessness. Today, 40% of all homeless youth identify as LGBTQ. Many of these youth are alone, without any support system. LGBTQ youth face unique challenges, often being kicked out of the home because of who they are or who they identify as. When these youth are connected to The Center, many are facing mental health challenges including depression, substance abuse, posttraumatic stress disorder, vulnerability, and some are living with HIV.
The Center is thankful for your continued support that has allowed us to provide life-saving services to our homeless LGBTQ youth. This Giving Tuesday we ask for your support, by making a special gift to support homeless LGBTQ youth in our community. To make your special gift, matched generously by RICHS San Diego, click here or visit thecentersd.org/YourCenter. Many thanks to all of you for your generous support.
