When Black Friday comes around, people come out in hoards to purchase gifts for the holidays. Others wait until CyberMonday to snag that deal. But what about Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday, also known as December 1st this year, is a day dedicated to giving ‐‐ when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together. Boys Town encourages you to make your donation in celebration of this day!

When you choose Boys Town on Giving Tuesday, you are investing in the future of the boys and girls in our programs.

Students come to Boys Town often lacking the skills that will help them find a job and thrive as adults.

You can give these girls and boys a brighter future when you supp​ort Boys Town’s Career Readiness Center on Giving Tuesday. The Boys Town Career Readiness Center prepares high school students who have made the commitment to change their lives as residents of our Family Home Program.

With your support, students find their passion, learn specific workplace skills and build connections with potential employers and mentors while completing their required academic courses for graduation. Combined with the life skills and relationship-building strategies they learn as part of their Family Home families, with your support, these boys and girls are making huge strides toward a better life.

Make your decision to invest in their future this Tuesday, December 1 for Giving Tuesday. When you do, you are preparing students to make their mark in the real world as productive, hard-working citizens.

Thank you for your consideration and support.
