Giving Tuesday is here. Giving Tuesday is a national observance to encourage us to give to charities and volunteer organizations that make our lives better. We hope you will consider a gift to JHBG. Here is a link to our website. www.jhbg.org/donate
You know us; we’re the folks who bring you the Halloween Parade, the Christmas-Hanukkah festivities at the Post Office, the Jackson Heights Orchestra and Summer Sundays in the Parks; we garden 17 different spots around JH; we run the JH Scraps compost center, advocate for parks/open space and programs that green the neighborhood and make it more environmentally sustainable; we remove graffiti, provide a park to walk your pooch, support our landmark district, run an annual children’s art contest, provide info on local schools, and produce a neighborhood newsletter. Whew! And we do this with volunteers.
But just because we are volunteers, doesn’t mean the free programs we run are without cost.
Donations are often matched by employers so check on the policy at your workplace.
