Every fall, people from around the world come together and perform generous acts of kindness to better their communities and support nonprofits in need. This global movement is called Giving Tuesday and takes place today, Nov. 30! 

For those looking to get involved and participate in the giving season this year, we have compiled a few organizations that provide convenient ways for Houstonians to donate their time and/or provide monetary gifts. 

Houston Food Bank

The Houston Food Bank fights food insecurity by distributing essentials to those in need as well as providing programs and services that help families achieve long-term stability. You can help the Houston Food Bank by giving funds, food or simply your time. 

Donate - Every $1 provides a full day of meals to those in need
Collect - Host a food drive to get your friends, family, business or organization involved
Drop In the Red Barrel - Red Barrels can be found in grocery stores throughout the Houston area for fast, convenient donations.

Toys For Tots 

When you donate to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots Foundation, you give children in need a reason to believe in their future. The organization distributes toys to low-income families throughout the entire country and directly contributes to the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – the next generation. The goal is not only to help children from low-income families experience a special holiday season, but to help them become responsible, productive and patriotic citizens.

United Way 

United Way of Greater Houston helps Houstonians overcome barriers to achieve success and thrive by providing tools, resources and educational support to individuals and families. United Way helps fund dozens of partner nonprofits that also directly serve the community. This can range anywhere from quality out-of-school programs to basic and immediate needs like food, shelter, clothing and transportation. Last year, United Way helped 2 million people in the Houston region. Partner with United Way by making a donation or joining their volunteer force to give back.

Giving Tuesday is a perfect time to get involved in your community. However, the charitable spirit behind Giving Tuesday does not need to be confined to one day. Give back all year round by supporting causes and movements that help shape a better tomorrow.
