Giving Tuesday represents a time when charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: To celebrate generosity and to give. In addition to making the $5,000 contribution, The United Family kicked off a donate-at-the register Giving Tuesday campaign in Lubbock, Slaton, Levelland and Post that will last through Sunday, December 5th. Guests can add a donation amount on to their grocery bill at checkout.

We are blessed to be a part of it.” The Community Foundation of West Texas has participated in the #GivingTuesday movement since 2015 when it first came to the South Plains. “The Community Foundation of West Texas is very proud of this initiative as it shows great community teamwork coming together to help those in need,” said Michelle Tosi-Stephens, Vice President of Development for CFWT.
