YMCA of MEWSA participates in #Giving Tuesday Nov. 28

The YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy (MEWSA) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. This year’s event is held Nov. 28.

Rose Cushing, YMCA of MEWSA president and chief executive officer, said the money raised on Giving Tuesday will support scholarships for those in the community who need it the most.

In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. More than $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
