Martin-Pitt Partnership Celebrates Giving Tuesday

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is an annual day of support held on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Each year, nonprofits across the world benefit from the generosity of others during this international day of giving. After enjoying the sales and shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday focuses on the spirit of giving back. The holiday is an opportunity for everyone to support the causes that are important to them.


When is Giving Tuesday this year?

 This year, Giving Tuesday will be held on December 1, 2020. 


How Does Giving Tuesday work?

There are dozens of ways to participate in Giving Tuesday each year. As a supporter of Martin-Pitt Partnership for Children, you can help us reach children, families, and child care providers in several ways, including:

  • Making a monetary donation
  • Creating a Facebook Fundraiser or donating to our fundraiser
  • Donating cleaning supplies for us to supply to local child care providers
  • Donate age-appropriate supplies including books, toys, and games for families we serve
  • Share information from our blog or social media with your friends, family, and coworkers about the importance of early childhood education


How to Donate on Giving Tuesday

On Giving Tuesday, your donation to the Martin-Pitt Partnership for Children will help continue to support young children’s development and growth to ensure a bright future for every child in our community.


Cleaning Supplies We Need

As you can imagine, many child care providers are struggling to find the quantities of cleaning supplies they need. Here are the most popular items on the wish lists of child care providers:

  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Disinfecting spray
  • Paper towels
  • Bleach
  • Disinfecting hand soap
  • Gloves


Age-Appropriate Toys and Activities

It’s essential that children have access to high-quality materials and activities during their first five years. As we continue to manage the risk of COVID-19 within child care facilities, providing materials that child care providers can clean and disinfect is critical. Items such as Legos, plastic blocks, puzzles, and outdoor activities are a perfect choice. These items provide child care facilities with easy to clean materials that are also educational for the children in their care.
