Non-Profit organizations are benefiting today from Giving Tuesday Now. It is a global day of giving during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like many non-profits, Sue Roll at the Bonifas Arts Center in Escanaba says they have been adversely affected by the stay home order that kept people away. But she says, the arts remain important, even during these unprecedented times.
“I think the role of arts and culture has risen to the surface in all of the things that have gone on in social media that we see and people staying home, “Roll said. “People are reading, people are listening to music. Those are all forms of the arts. Encouraging that, putting us in the position that we have all of that stuff available to us and it’s continuing to be created in a good way I think is a pretty neat thing.”
Giving Tuesday is usually held after Thanksgiving for the holidays. You can become a member of the Bonifas or contribute to the Bonifas by clicking the donate button.
