The Cuckolds Light Station Council has joined more than two dozen nonprofit organizations from the Boothbay region, and organizations across the country, to encourage a spirit of giving in the midst of the busy holiday shopping season.
The group, calling itself Boothbay Treasures, is encouraging people throughout the region to designate Tuesday, December 2nd as a day to celebrate generosity and to support nonprofit organizations that contribute to the life and vitality of the community. The nationwide effort, called #GivingTuesday, is scheduled to occur immediately after Black Friday, November 28, and Cyber Monday, December 1, the biggest in-store and online shopping days of the year for retailers across the country.
“We are honored to be part of a community with such a generous spirit and so many treasured organizations that make this a wonderful place to live, work and play,” said Janet Reingold, spokesperson for the Cuckolds Council. “Giving Tuesday is a great way to acknowledge and support the many ways nonprofits enrich the quality of life for year-round residents and visitors alike.”
