Roxboro Community School (RCS) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity.

Occurring this year on Nov. 28, #GivingTuesday is held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S., and the recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to back charities and causes.

RCS hopes #GivingTuesday will encourage the community to continue supporting the school through monetary donations to the Raise the Roof campaign, athletics, clubs, or general funding. The gift of time is also appreciated.

Those who are interested in joining RCS’s #GivingTuesday initiative can visit www.roxborocs.org or the school Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RoxboroCS/.

Those interested in donating to the Raise the Roof capital campaign should contact Director of Development Phyliss Boatwright at boatwrightpa@roxborocs.org or call 336- 597-0020, ext. 220.

Supporters may also contact volunteer coordinator Carrie Hawkins at hawkinscb@roxborocs.org or by phone at 336-597-0020, ext. 114 to learn how to volunteer or donate items.

“We greatly appreciate all the community does for us here at RCS. The students and staff greatly benefit from donations that are so generously given to our school. Please consider donating to RCS on Giving Tuesday so we may continue to do great things here at Roxboro Community School,” said Dave Ebert, managing executive director of RCS.
