The Houston Community Foundation, which works for the betterment of the local community, will participate in “Giving Tuesday” today.
Started in 2012, it has grown to a worldwide program that now includes 50 counties.
Houston Community Foundation said Tuesday marks only 22 days until Christmas. It is asking everyone to make a $22 tax-deductible contribution. The foundation provides scholarships and helps to support the work of numerous organizations in the community. Most recently, it announced $600,000 had been secured from an estate to provide scholarships to Houston High School seniors. Ross Richardson is the president of the local affiliate of Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
