Support The Glades Initiative on #Giving Tuesday! GIVING

#GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. 

The Glades Initiative works hard to connect people to critical services and advocates on behalf of our residents for the betterment of our community. We seek to keep our community healthy, fed, engaged, informed and connected. Be a supporter of worthwhile local nonprofits this holiday season -- consider making a donation to support vital programs at The Glades Initiative for #GivingTuesday!
