VAN WERT – Giving Tuesday was established as a national day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and is a celebration of philanthropy and volunteerism where people give whatever they are able to give.

Giving Tuesday is a day where citizens work together to share commitments, rally for favorite causes, build a stronger community, and think about other people, and it is fitting and proper on Giving Tuesday and on every day to recognize the tremendous impact of philanthropy, volunteerism, and community service in Van Wert County.

Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to encourage citizens to serve others throughout this holiday season and during other times of the year; therefore, the Board of Van Wert County Commissioners have proclaimed Dec. 3, 2019, as Giving Tuesday in Van Wert County and encourage all citizens to join together to give back to the community in any way that is personally meaningful.
