St. Anthony Shrine is enthusiastically participating in this day of giving! #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving thanks. #GivingTuesday is celebrated on Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving, November 27, 2018. Beginning in 2012, #GivingTuesday and has quickly become a global movement that celebrates and supports nonprofit organizations.
It takes $15,000 per day to keep our doors open.
Your gift will go towards things such as:
- Weekly groceries for 400+ families from our Franciscan Food Center
- Backpacks and school supplies for children in our Kids Program
- Monthly Veterans luncheons
- Funerals for the homeless, also known as our Lazarus Ministry
The heart symbol in #GivingTuesday represents connecting diverse groups around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. The Shrine decided to make its own #GivingTuesday symbol by placing a lily and bread next to the #GivingTuesday heart. The lily represents St. Anthony’s purity, while the bread is a remembrance of St. Anthony’s charity to the poor. We look for guidance from St. Anthony around the holiday season and especially on #GivingTuesday to remember to give back to those in need.
St. Anthony Shrine invites you to join us for this 24-hour celebration! Invite your friends, family and business networks to celebrate and make a gift to the Shrine.
