Giving Tuesday Now
Giving Tuesday Now is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
This new day is organized by Giving Tuesday, and is being held in addition to the annually scheduled Giving Tuesday event that will still take place on December 1, 2020. In partnership with Giving Tuesday’s global network of leaders, partners, communities and generous individuals, this event is set to spark an increase in grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
People can show their generosity in a variety of ways to participate in Giving Tuesday Now–whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts. The movement is currently focused on opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while practicing physical distancing.
Giving Tuesday Now is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity–to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
The Susquehanna Council, BSA serves more than 2,100 youth through the leadership of 1,000 adult volunteers. Scouting provides programs to youth in five counties in Central Pennsylvania – Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union.
The Council is also home to beautiful Camp Karoondinha along Penns Creek in western Union County. Each summer we provide exceptional programming to Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA and Venturers. We are building character in the youth of our communities, one child at a time.
The Boy Scouts of America (the BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with more than 2.4 million youth participants and nearly one million adult volunteers. The BSA was founded in 1910, and since then, more than 110 million Americans have been participants in BSA programs at some time. The BSA is part of the international Scout Movement and became a founding member organization of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922.
The BSA’s goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to instill typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoor skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.
