“The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) will host a #GivingTuesday Neighborhood Open House on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, from 5 to 8 p.m. at LAYC’s anchor site in Columbia Heights, 1419 Columbia Road, NW, Washington, DC, 20009.
#GivingTuesday, which follows the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, starts the holiday giving season with a global day dedicated to charitable giving, harnessing the power of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities.
#GivingTuesday celebrates and encourages people to give their time, resources, talents, and social media voice to a new kind of philanthropy that is about social purpose and collaboration for a better world.
LAYC’s #GivingTuesday Neighborhood Open House will kick off its annual Give Warmth Coat Drive and will feature live holiday music, festive refreshments, and games. LAYC programs will be on-hand to share volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to donate new or gently used and laundered winter clothing, such as coats, scarves, and mittens. Tickets and more information are available at laycgivingtuesday.eventbrite.com.
