Conception Abbey and Tri-C Partners 4 Progress Plan to Help Families in Need This #GivingTuesday

Conception Abbey and #GivingTuesday. Conception Abbey and Tri-C Partners 4 Progress are planning once again to help local families in need during this year’s celebration of #GivingTuesday, occurring this year on Nov. 28, 2017. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy to kick off the holiday giving season following the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

#GivingTuesday at Conception Abbey will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the St. Raphael Welcome Center on Nov. 28 on the campus of Conception Abbey. Eight local families have been adopted, and the Abbey and Tri-C Partners 4 Progress are currently seeking donations of items and financial contributions to help make the holiday season a little brighter for them and others in need.

Here is how you can help:

  • Bring an item to donate to a family in need (adult & children’s clothing, gifts cards, toys, cash).
  • Help decorate a Christmas tree that will be given to our adopted families.
  • Bring nonperishable food items or personal hygiene items to donate to our local food banks.
  • Help us gift wrap donated items.
  • Bring baby items for area mothers that are in need of assistance.
  • Help us decorate ornaments for the trees.
  • Help us make hand-tie fleece blankets for our adopted families.
  • Send a Christmas card to those alone or without family during the holiday season.

To find out more details about the needs of the adopted families or to make a financial contribution to Conception Abbey’s #GivingTuesday campaign, visit https://www.conceptionabbey.org/monastery/givingtuesday/.

During the evening’s festivities, the Bennet Book, Card and Gift Shop will be open, cookies and cocoa will be provided, and there will be music to get you in the spirit of the season. If you can’t join us for the event, you can still support our partners and us throughout the year.

If you would like more information or you or your organization would like to sponsor the event, contact Trish Wiederholt at (660) 944-2958 or events@conception.edu.
