We will be on Fountain Square tomorrow (tuesday 12/2) from 11a-1p with Cincinnati Bengals players Vincent Rey, Chris Pressley, Kevin Huber, Mike Nugent and Clark Harris will be accepting gifts for Lighthouse Youth Services Happy Holidays gift drive, which provides gifts for more than 2,000 local children, teens and young adults in need.
This year’s event takes place on #GivingTuesday, the latest national initiative to kick-off the holiday shopping season. Nationally, a group of charities and corporate sponsors is urging Americans to make the Tuesday after Thanksgiving just as powerful a day of giving to those in need. The goal of #GivingTuesday is to drive donations to charities with the same enthusiasm that consumers have on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The young people who are in Lighthouse’s care have often been abused and neglected with no real place to call home. At this time of year, teenagers are often forgotten. Each year, Lighthouse relies on the generosity of the community to provide gifts for more than 550 teenagers living in foster care, group homes and older youth living independently in supervised apartments, as well as nearly 200 homeless youth. Greater Cincinnati residents are asked to purchase gifts, gift cards and basic necessities from the Lighthouse “Top 10 Wish List” to help local youth in need. Items on the wish list include basic necessities, such as gloves, scarves, sweatshirts, personal care and household items.
Cincinnati Bengals, Lighthouse staff and volunteers will be on the square to accept gifts, gift cards and cash donations. Gift cards from retailers are especially helpful, because they allow social workers to purchase exactly what is needed, from basic necessities to clothes and household items. For more information about the Lighthouse Happy Holidays gift drive and the on-line Wish List, visit www.lys.org or call (513) 487-7154. “SHARE ON THE SQUARE” ON #GIVINGTUESDAY
