#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on Tuesday, November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
SamaraCare has joined #Giving Tuesday to create greater awareness of the need for good mental health in our communities and to raise funds for our vitally important Mental Health Access Program. This program provides fee subsidies to individuals and families who need and deserve mental health counseling and testing but whom are without the financial resources to afford care. Many of our clients include people who are unemployed, low income, experiencing financial difficulties or insurance poor due to high deductibles. In FY 18, SamaraCare gave over $438,000 in fee subsidies to nearly 400 clients.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the #Giving Tuesday movement” stated Scott Mitchell, President & CEO. “It’s inspiring and gratifying to see so many people, who believe in our mission, support our organization and the good work we do. This November 27th, please join the movement and give a donation to SamaraCare so that we can continue to provide quality, affordable mental health care to everyone who comes to SamaraCare seeking treatment.
