What is Giving Tuesday?
Think about the impact we could make in a 24-hour period if everyone decided to step up and be generous. Giving Tuesday was founded eleven years ago with that goal in mind…to bring people together for a day of giving back. It has since become a worldwide movement of generosity, with nearly every country in the world participating. Please consider joining with Cross Timbers on November 28th, 2023 as we give thanks for the blessings God has poured out to us by giving back to others.
Giving Tuesday Will Provide...
With your gifts, the Cross Timbers Hope Center can make a difference in the lives of so many and bless them through multiple ministry events that take place both weekly and throughout the year. Here are a few examples of the impact your gifts can make through these events.
Mobile and On-Site Feedings
The Hope Center provides free weekly meals for families and mobile communities through Feed the City events. Funds donated on Giving Tuesday will go to the Hope Center to help continue to provide free meals to those in need.
$25 in gifts can feed a family of 4.
$60 in gifts can feed 10 people.
$1800 in gifts provides enough meals for every family at one outreach event, which is approximately 300 individuals or 325 families!
Fix My Ride
Fix My Ride is an event designed to assist single parents, the unemployed and under-employed as well as those who are not currently able to afford minor vehicle repairs and/or maintenance. Funds donated on Giving Tuesday will go to the Hope Center to help get cars safely back on the road.
$1000 in gifts can repair approximately 4 cars!
Back to School Supply Drive
Each school year, the Cross Timbers Hope Center hosts a supply drive with the goal of providing families the resources they need for their students. Financial gifts for this event help students have a great first day back at school.
Financial gifts donated on Giving Tuesday will go to the Hope Center to help purchase supplemental food items that food banks do not have. This includes essential food items, but also memorable items that food banks don’t have like fruit snacks, goldfish, popcorn, etc. for school lunches, and fun cereal for kids.
Just $75 in gifts can pack a pantry for a family in need.
Christmas – Gift of Hope
Another annual holiday outreach initiative, Gift of Hope is an event where we bless our community by providing a Christmas shopping experience for families in need. Funds donated on Giving Tuesday will go to the Hope Center to help purchase gifts for this event.
$300 in gifts can provide 4 Christmas gifts for a child.
$1500 in gifts can provide Christmas gifts for an entire family!
