On May 5, 2020, Charleston Promise Neighborhood (CPN) is participating in Giving Tuesday Now, a global day of unity and giving. CPN will be raising funds to further their current efforts of providing utility assistance and gift cards from local grocers to the families in their service area.
To encourage others to give to the cause, local philanthropists, Walker and Eddie Buxton have graciously committed $10,000 through their WEP Foundation to CPN to match donations received through their Giving Tuesday Now campaign. All donations, including the match funds, will go directly back into supporting the community.
Normally at work in the neighborhood schools, which are now closed due to the current pandemic, CPN has remained proactive in looking for ways to continue to support their students and families. The needs of their community are greater than usual and together with other local nonprofits, CPN is doing everything possible to ensure community stability during these unprecedented times.
All donations given to CPN between now and May 5, 2020, will be put towards the match goal. To make a donation, visit charity.gofundme.com/supportcharlestonpromise.
