Training Overview


"People with the resources to give have already been giving ... and my first concern is that needs are continuing to go up. "My second concern is that, even though we’re coming into a time when people usually give the most, we needed that help earlier this year — and now we’re going to need even more. "All of the work we’ve been doing, all of the extra money and all of the volunteers we’ve had, it’s all they said wonderful. But it’s just not enough." Given the financial climate, local nonprofits have high hopes for Giving Tuesday. Harbor Humane is hosting a #showusyourbones campaign, which has already kicked off. The nonprofit hopes to collect $60,000 to purchase an X-ray machine and lay out a corresponding room at its location in West Olive. According to Jennifer Nuernberg, development director at Harbor Humane, the machine could save the nonprofit hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. The organization has already secured a matching donor who will double donations up to $25,000. Kids’ Food Basket — which recently opened its Holland location — will use social media on Giving Tuesday to highlight its impact in the community since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the month of December, Kids’ Food Basket will host weekly donor matches.
