AmeriDrive is proud to announce our first Toy Drive for kids in need from the Immaculate Conception Catholic School!
This #GivingTuesday AmeriDrive will begin to collect toys for the kids of the Immaculate Conception Catholic School.
Giving Tuesday, popularly known as #GivingTuesday part of the hashtag activism, refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States. #GivingTuesday is a movement in an effort to create an international day of charitable giving to begin the holiday season. Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday).
The mission of Immaculate Conception Catholic School (ICC), established in 1954, is to offer all students from early childhood to adolescence a quality Roman Catholic education by meeting the specific needs of the students in their spiritual, academic, cultural, physical, and social development.
Students from any background can attend the ICC school through the utilization of various scholarships; including, AAA Scholarship, McKay Scholarship, and StepUp for Students. In order to help families in the ICC school through the holidays, every year on December 15th volunteers come to the homes of these families and decorate their houses. AmeriDrive has seen this occasion as an incredible opportunity to add a little Christmas magic to the kids from the ICC School by giving them toys along with their new Christmas tree and decorations.
Giving Tuesday has become a positive movement in today’s society. With a large number of organizations, including Google, Microsoft, Skype, Cisco, UNICEF, the Case Foundation, Save the Children, and others joining in as partners. Giving Tuesday has been praised as the direct opposite of today’s consumer culture and as a way for people to give back.
Take this as your opportunity to give back to your community and become part of the movement. Starting this #GivingTuesday November 27th, 2018 through Friday, December 14, 2018, when AmeriDrive will open its doors to all of those who are willing to gift toys to the children of the ICC School.
