5 Ways to Get Involved for #GivingTuesday

Giving Tuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday, a great excuse for all of us to take a look around our world and decide how we can be of service. Giving is about more than writing a check—it’s about seeing a need for change and doing what you can to bring it about. Whether it’s our time, our money, or our great idea, we all have something to give.

This #GivingTuesday, we hope that you will support 211 in helping people connect to the services they need to live healthy, independent lives. Here are 5 great ways to give:

1. Donate Your Time
If what you have to give is time, we’ll take it! Your time and energy are very valuable to us. 211 is always looking for volunteers to help with outreach, satisfaction surveys, tax scheduling, and more. If you love meeting new people, learning new things, and helping people in your community connect, get in touch! Learn more about volunteering for 211 here and here.

2. Share Your Expertise
Do you have a superpower you want to share? Maybe you relish research, have a way with words, or are a real people person. Don’t keep all that talent to yourself. 211 needs your expertise. Let us know how you can help and we’ll gladly turn your expertise into action.

3. Make a Financial Contribution
There’s no way around it: money helps. Making a monthly donation, whether it’s for $5 or $500, lets us know that you support the work we’re doing in the community. Your monthly donation gives us the security we need to build this great program to meet the needs of more people in Nevada County. Donate here.

4. Like or Share
Social media is powerful. Use your power for good by liking 211 on Facebook and Instagram and invite your friends to do the same. It really helps!

5. Tell a Friend
If you like what 211 is doing, let someone else know about us. Tell your friends, your family, and your neighbors about 211 and help us spread the word. And remember, 211 is free, friendly, and available 24/7.
