#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Construct’s vision is for a socially vibrant and economically healthy community with housing for everyone. But we ask a lot of those who come into our transitional housing: that they increase their income, find permanent housing and address the underlying issues that contributed to their homelessness. In exchange, we do our best to provide a healthy and hospitable home base during their stay.
Our theme for this year’s #GivingTuesday is #GiveUsFoodDay in order to highlight the need for enough good, healthy food to feed all those who come through our doors. Join us in raising $12,000 to cover food costs for the coming year for the most vulnerable in our community.
