The holiday season is almost upon us. And while we first get ready for a night of turkey dinner, and a morning of fighting for the best holiday deals; it is important to remember that the holiday season is truly about giving. It is because of this that NYCID is proud to support the worldwide holiday of Giving Tuesday, once more. The holiday season is almost upon us. And while we first get ready for a night of turkey dinner, and a morning of fighting for the best holiday deals; it is important to remember that the holiday season is truly about giving. It is because of this that NYCID is proud to support the worldwide holiday of Giving Tuesday, once more.

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday provides individuals and organizations around the world a chance to come together and make a difference. Whether it’s service hours or online donations, people come out on Giving Tuesday to help support charities and organizations in their community. Last year, people across 98 different countries donated, raised, and collected $177 million. Giving Tuesday will be November 28th this year. Helping others is the reason for the season. Start off your winter with a donation to a charity that helps make a change in your world. We hope that this season, you and your families will participate in this worldwide movement by donation to a local group that makes a difference.

The New York Center for Interpersonal Development (NYCID) has worked to better the Staten Island community for over 45 years. NYCID has created a number of programs to help children and young adults on Staten Island. Our After School Enrichment programs for children and teenagers teach students to give back to the community. The Young Adult Borough Center (YABC) helps teens and young adults struggling to finish high school to become goal oriented learners with the tools to succeed beyond the walls of the schools. NYCID also provides divorced or separating parents and their children with mediation and counseling resources. We also help out our community by working to provide an avenue for a better future for those who have been in the criminal justice system; and are trying to redeem themselves.

Our programs provide training for community members to become community leaders. But our community organization needs community action. With your help this Giving Tuesday, we can make a change for a better. Support the Staten Island by helping us better the lives of our youth. Thank you to all who supported us in the past and those who will help us, and Staten Island, in the future. Don’t forget to help make a difference this Giving Tuesday, on November 28th!
