Yes Solar Solutions’ home states of North and South Carolina were among those devastated by Hurricane Matthew and thousands are still homeless, hungry and without basic supplies. For Giving Tuesday, November 29, Yes Solar Solutions is hosting food drives through the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and the Lowcountry Food Bank in Charleston South Carolina.
And as part of our commitment to sustainable housing, this year we are again participating in the Habitat of Wake County’s “$60 for 60” campaign to build 60 homes this year. To donate, fill in your information and either check “In honor of someone” and enter Yes Solar Solutions or just put it in comments. Any amount you can donate will make a difference with Yes Solar’s matching funds.
Giving Tuesday is November 29, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Founded by 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, #GivingTuesday rallies, organizes and amplifies the philanthropic efforts of over 30, 000 organizations worldwide. The intent? To encourage and amplify small acts of kindness from giving donations, time or resources by harnessing the power of social media and people’s innate generosity to create real positive change in their communities.
To that end, Yes Solar is asking you to join us in what we all do best: online shopping!
In North Carolina, go to our Food Bank drive page, and click on one of the tabs to shop for a food category and send a few meals to those in need. Let’s make our $500 goal! We can watch the progress as we make our donations, every dollar is worth $10 of food!
Yes Solar is matching gifts up to $500 for each food bank and up to $600 for Habitat! Give thanks for your own blessings, and give food and shelter for our neighbors who need it most. Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday with its emphasis on buying “stuff” when so many are still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Matthew. Let’s make a difference together.
