I don’t do Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but I do like to find ways to contribute on Giving Tuesday. There are so many great organizations that depend on our support this time of the year. I’ve got my regulars, too (church, MS Society, Red Cross, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance), but this year I want to share a couple for your consideration because of the work they are doing right now in the STL/Ferguson communities:
www.amenstlouis.org – The mission arm of our church, where we welcome volunteers and mission teams to serve in our city. We’ve also been housing legal observers and activists throughout the past couple months.
www.towergrovechurch.org – A neighbor congregation that served as a safe sanctuary for all during the grand jury announcement and had their windows broken out during the night while they were feeding and welcoming others!
www.marianmiddleschool.org – “Educating girls for life.” And in my opinion, showing girls in STL options and exciting opportunities.
www.stl.unitedway.org – Supports local non-profits and provides financial assistance to people directly impacted by actions in Ferguson.
