Fresno, CA (KFSN)-GivingTuesday is known worldwide as a day to encourage people to do good and give back to their communities.

“The Valley Animal Center is a cat and dog adoption center, but it’s not the only one,” says Alicia Sanchez. “We don’t just adopt. We have low-cost clinics and membership dog parks.”

Last year, the Valley Animal Center raised over $ 5,000.

On this GivingTuesday, nonprofits want to raise $ 10,000, secure 1,000 hours of volunteering, and adopt 10 animals.

“For example, if an individual is in a financial crisis and unable to take care of animals, they will come to the Valley Animal Center to surrender their pets,” Sanchez said. “We demand a surrender fee, but in many cases the surrender fee does not cover the cost of taking responsibility for the animal. They may not be able to undergo contraceptive neutering or contraceptive neutering. And it may not be up to date about the vaccine. “

Many local organizations such as Ronald McDonald House and Mary Ella Brown Community Center participate in the global movement.

Helping people experiencing domestic violence, the Margery Mason Center hosts the “Tree of Hope Program” at the Fashion Fair, Regal Edwards at River Park and Legal Marketplace.

“We provide a 24/7 crisis response emergency shelter transition service, counseling, assisting court attendants and restraining orders, and providing numerous services to embrace the entire family.” Nicole Divduo says.

This organization often serves families whose homes are unsafe and have few belongings. That’s why they’re asking the community to select tags from the tree to buy wishlist items.

These are just a few examples of how local nonprofits support many in the community.

There are many others that play such an important role.

So, if possible, instead of spending $ 5 on latte, put it for the purpose you care about.

But the most important thing you can do for this GivingTuesday is to give some kindness during these difficult times.
