It is the Children's Welfare League's mission to promote the education and welfare of disadvantaged high school students of Buncombe County. The SOS fund is one way this mission is supported. By working with Buncombe county high school counselors and social workers, our SOS fund allows us to intervene and assist in times of crisis. Requests are made by the counselors and social workers on behalf of the needy student. Examples of requests funded in the past include:
Your gift on Giving Tuesday will help support causes like these and expand our reach to many more students in need.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Each year, on the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
