Giving Tuesday celebrates the charitable season as many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. This global day of giving encourages people to do good, in all acts of giving and is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
In 2023, the JK Community Farm turned $333,000 raised on Giving Tuesday into the equivalent of 2.1 million dollars of food for our food pantry partners. Our goal this Giving Tuesday is to raise $500,000 to help us increase the varieties of produce we provide to meet the nutritional and cultural needs of our community.
