Legacy Foundation responds to urgent COVID-19 need by joining #GivingTuesdayNow in Global Day of Giving and Unity

By: Legacy Foundation Last Updated: May 3, 2020

We could all use a little love right now. #GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of generosity and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020, to come together and give back in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

At a time when we are home together, #GivingTuesdayNow is a great opportunity to work together to spread generosity and support those working to lessen the impact of coronavirus on our community.
