Copper Shores to host event
#GivingTuesday to be celebrated
The giving season is off to a great start with #GiveCopperCountry in full force, and this year’s event will feature a public event. On Tuesday, November 28, Copper Shores Community Health Foundation will be hosting a #GivingTuesday special event from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Copper Country Mall.
The community is invited to meet with the people who help run participating nonprofits, ask them questions and make donations in person. It is free for people to enter and food will be offered by Copper Shores Meals on Wheels. While there, attendees can take a peek at live media interviews, find new organizations, help loved ones and neighbors by supporting local nonprofits, and get free giveaways.
“Our nonprofits do the work they do to make our community a better place, and I am excited for our community to have a chance to thank them in person this year,” said Michael H. Babcock, director of marketing and donor relations at Copper Shores. “This event will be a great opportunity for all of us to get to know each other better and celebrate the immense amount of generosity our community has shown.”
The Copper Country has many unique needs, and many local nonprofits that are uniquely suited to assist with those needs. Several of those organizations have partnered with Copper Shores for #GivingTuesday in 2023, making it the biggest year for #GiveCopperCountry to date.
This year 30 local nonprofits will be participating in #GiveCopperCountry, the Giving Tuesday campaign that aids nonprofit organizations in Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties.
#GivingTuesday is a global celebration that takes place every year to encourage people to donate to nonprofit organizations as part of their gifting during the holiday season. Though people give to their loved ones during this time, it is also important to give back to those who have given so much to the community at large.
This live event is made possible by Moyle Real Estate and Development, who is donating the space throughout the day to help promote our community’s nonprofits. Copper Shores is also excited to thank Shorewaves Internet for dedicating bandwidth to the event on their network at the mall.
