Mayor Gibbons proclaims #GivingTuesday
LENOIR, NC (November 15, 2017)…Mayor Joe Gibbons declared Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, to be #GivingTuesday in the City of Lenoir. Gibbons made the proclamation Tuesday night, Nov. 14, during City Council’s regular meeting.
#GivingTuesday is an idea brought to the Mayor by Ms. Kenvian Moravec with Teacher Treasures A Resource Center. Moravec said #GivingTuesday is a day “when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, and retailers and more will all come together” and give back to various groups and causes across the city and county.
Last year, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support causes they believe in, Moravec said. More than $177 million was raised online to support many organizations.
“There are so many places we can give as a community, as individuals, as corporations to help our town,” Moravec said. “Go in your closets, get coats, get blankets and give them to [people in need].”
