Giving Tuesday

December 1, 2020

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, make a difference on #GivingTuesday. Last year, you helped replace aging appliances at the Tokarski Home, where hospice patients that need a place to call home spend their final days. This year, we need your help to transform the outside of the Tokarski Home after 9 winters. We need to raise $9,000 to repair and repaint the exterior of the Tokarski Home. Every bit makes a difference on #GivingTuesday.
