Join the Movement; Celebrate #GivingTuesday

November is the month of giving; we have a day to give thanks, and even special days for retailers to give discounts with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And thanks to the 92nd Street Y, a cultural center in New York, we have an annual day for giving back — #GivingTuesday.

Now in its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and was conceived to harness the power of social media to bring businesses, non-profit and community organizations, and individuals and families together to give back.

Get in on the giving

At Lakeland Bank we host a bank-wide food drive in November to support local food pantries and also roll out our Annual Share-A-Gift program. For Share-A-Gift, all of our Branches partner with a local charity to collect gifts for the holiday season. This is the perfect way to give back on #GivingTuesday! Stop by any branch to see what types of gifts are being collected and then drop off a donation on Tuesday, November 29.

If you can’t join us, here are some other ways to join the celebration:

  • Contact a local non-profit to learn how you can help.
  • If you don’t have extra funds to donate, volunteer your time and talent!
  • Make a financial donation to a charity or cause that's important to you.
  • Invite family members, friends, and co-workers to give with you.
  • Ask your company to participate in a company-wide giving initiative.
  • Use social media to promote #GivingTuesday and share photos of you giving back.
