Giving Tuesday 2020
published on Monday, May 4th, 2020
Today is Giving Tuesday , a global celebration of generosity. This day alone typically raises millions of dollars for millions of organizations, so they can continue their work with families and communities in need.
As with everything else right now, Giving Tuesday 2020 looks- and feels- different. Some families are navigating severe hardships, while others may be looking for opportunities to give back. That's why, in EPIC's 40th anniversary year, we are hoping to find 40 people able to donate $40 to our Giving Tuesday campaign.
Parenting doesn't stop, and neither have we. Since New York State went on lockdown nearly eight weeks ago, EPIC quickly shifted to create the Parenting Doesn't Stop Project , which includes EPIC Academy, "Covid Conversations", Family Support Line , "Parenting on Pause" and an extensive Coronavirus Resource page with additional updates for families. Additionally, programs like Families in Transition and Incredible Years have shifted to virtual models to honor EPIC's commitment to our families.
We will continue to adapt with the changing times and serve the needs of our families, just as we have for the past 40 years. We know parenting takes a village- thank you for being part of ours, and as always, thank you for your support.
