On Tuesday, December 1, The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation will kick off its holiday campaign by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. This effort inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate, and help create a better world.
At The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation, we are committed to making the season brighter for families who might not otherwise be able to share a holiday meal. A nourishing meal with family and friends is a holiday tradition that makes the season special. Unfortunately, for many struggling families, unsure of how they’ll be able to afford all of the fixings, it can also be a stressful and difficult time.
Since 2011, partnering with 27 local church and social service organizations (representative of Malcolm’s jersey number), the Foundation’s Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise has helped put food on the tables of hundreds of New Orleans families. This year, we’re spreading the spirit of giving even further, as we bring the Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise to families in Philadelphia!
On #GivingTuesday, December 1, we need YOUR help! Our goal for #GivingTuesday is $7,500. Funds received will help us to double our impact by providing meals to 270 families in New Orleans and Philadelphia. With just one day to fund both events, we’re counting on your generosity this holiday season!
We encourage you to join us on CrowdRise as we work to keep traditions alive for 270 families who need a helping hand.
