As we enter the season of giving, we’re looking for ways to support Raleighites in need. Help out a neighbor by supporting these 10+ local causes now through the holidays.

Giving Tuesday

The following ways to give back are taking place today, Nov. 29.

  • Donate a pair of shoes or make a financial contribution to help Note in the Pocket provide 1,500 pairs of shoes to kids during Giving Shoesday.
  • Bring in two of The Green Chair Project’s most needed items between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and receive a free Tiff’s Treats cookie.
  • For every freezer casserole ordered through Fig’s Market, Catering Works will donate one to the Salvation Army of Wake County.
  • All day, YogaSix classes are supporting causes including Coats for Kids, a toy drive, and a canned food drive. Sign up to flow for good (and check class descriptions for what to bring).
  • The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC is tripling all donations today. This means that 15 meals will be provided for every $1 donated ($1 typically provides five meals).
