Ralston Center is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by social media, collaboration, and the generosity of individuals around the world.

#GivingTuesday takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, after the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, #GivingTuesday will be observed on Tuesday, November 29, kicking off the charitable season, when many people focus on their end-of-year charitable giving.
