MUM and #GivingTuesday


Next Tuesday, November 27, is the seventh annual #GivingTuesday, and MUM is participating! #GivingTuesday is kind of the flip side of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  After you’ve taken advantage of those great deals, the idea is to donate to causes you believe in and support.

It’s a great opportunity for MUM to participate in the broader cause, which uses the power of social media and collaboration to raise awareness, and help nonprofits and charitable organizations by receiving the support they need. MUM needs financial contributions to sustain our Mobile Pantry, which brings food to those in the communities we serve, who don’t have a way to come to our office food pantry.

Although the campaign targets the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, you can contribute to MUM’s #GivingTuesday event now! Know that your donations made through the end of #GivingTuesday will go directly to our clients who depend on the MUM Mobile Pantry for supplemental food for themselves and their families. You are helping us stay on the road and feeding those in need!

Giving to MUM is easy. Here is how to donate:
