From Habitat for Humanity:

​Entering its sixth year, GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year. You can donate for Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio by going to:
Every donation received by midnight Tuesday evening will be matched by an anonymous donor. This will help improve housing in Southeast Ohio in 2018 as we build four new houses and repair eight more.
The newest Habitat-built house in New Marshfield will be dedicated on Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 4:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
