Giving Tuesday

You’ve heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. On Tuesday, December 1st, people from across the country come together to celebrate generosity & give something back on Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday). Last year, SOHO received donations of $1,500 on Giving Tuesday. This year, we would like to raise $2,750 which would provide 10 athletes with a full season of training and competition.

In addition, we would like to invite more people to get involved with our organization as volunteers and hope to get 15 new volunteers.
To make a donation on Giving Tuesday, CLICK HERE and select “Specific SOMD Local Program” and Howard County. Can’t wait until Dec.1st to donate? We’ve got you covered.
