#GivingTuesday at Conception Abbey

Each year, Conception Abbey and Tri-C Partners 4 Progress partner together to make Christmas morning a little brighter for local families. For eight years, the #GivingTuesday event has been a highlight of the holiday season, raising money and collecting donations that will be used to purchase gifts and other items for local families in need.
