NEWS: 2 SCAN Volunteers Inspire Giving this Holiday Season

December 10, 2014

Last year, over 200 volunteers made SCAN’s work possible. This month, two of those volunteers — who made the decision to donate money in addition to their time at SCAN — shared their thoughts on why financially supporting SCAN has become an important compliment to their volunteer work, and invited other volunteers to consider doing the same. The messages from Leana Katz and Kelly Harbitter were sent out to SCAN’s volunteer base earlier this month, and are being shared again here during our most critical fundraising season.

SCAN has joined #GivingTuesday, a worldwide effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.

Noted as “one of the best nonprofits in the DC region” by the Catalogue for Philanthropy this year, we’ll be accepting donations on December 2nd through their site here, where we’ll track our goal of raising $5,000 during one day of giving. We also welcome you to join our Council of Young Professionals in posting a photo to our Facebook page or Twitter feed with the hashtags #givingtuesday and #unselfie. Tell your friends about why you choose to support SCAN on #GivingTuesday!
