Today is Giving Tuesday, “a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.” Last year over 700,000 people joined the movement and raised 116,000,000 dollars online; as word spreads and the movement grows, no doubt gifts to worthy organizations will grow as well.
The best way to get involved is to give within your own community, whether with some of your time or with a monetary gift. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our school, so that Hillcrest may continue our increasingly important mission: reaching students for Christ, emphasizing academic excellence, and incorporating Christ-like values in all extracurricular activities. If you’d like to do so online, please click the Annual Fund picture in the sidebar below, and thank you for your consideration!
Please make plans to come out tomorrow night for fun and fellowship in the beautiful fall weather …and bring some friends!
Don’t forget: Those who bought Fall Festival t-shirts may wear them every Tuesday in the month of November.
The due date for returning Homecoming t-shirt order forms has changed.
The form and payment is due Monday, September 19th.
We had to move the date up so the printer can have plenty of time for printing.
Thanks for your help!
