December 3rd is Giving Tuesday! Have you heard of it?

Giving Tuesday is a worldwide effort to create a tradition and rhythm of giving back during a season that many often struggle through. Giving Tuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity and equity around the globe.

 

The mission of Giving Tuesday aligns perfectly with our mission at the Christian Outreach Center and the Purple Cow. You can play a part in making the world a more just and generous place by building a backpack with the Christian Outreach Center. 

 

While you consider the ways you will impact the world through Giving Tuesday, consider the homeless men and women in your community. What do you think the holiday season will look like for the vulnerable men, women and families in downtown Baton Rouge? 

 

We’re seeking to mitigate their struggle and meet their tangible needs this Giving Tuesday! You can play a part in making the world a more just and generous world by building a backpack with the Christian Outreach Center.

 

Here’s how it works…

 

The COC is packing backpacks of items that are of critical need throughout the winter months for the homeless. And we need your help to pack them! Below are some of the items and a price that represents our cost to fill the bag and continue our ministry to this community. Your donations make it possible for us to meet these tangible needs, but also to use these backpacks as a connecting point to services that will create much more sustainable, long-term and life changing services. In other words, your donations offer more than just a backpack.

 

You can be a part of changing our city and our people for the better by selecting any amount to donate below! *Please keep in mind the COC is accepting monetary donations only for this specific campaign. All donations of goods can be made to the Purple Cow at any time!
