HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Local nonprofits have a variety of plans for Giving Tuesday, a fundraising holiday that encourages people to support charities and nonprofits.

From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 28, Facing Hunger Foodbank will do a Dollar Donation Drive-Thru Day in the parking lots of two City National Bank locations in Huntington, one at 3rd Avenue and one at 5th Avenue where staff members and volunteers will collect monetary donations for the nonprofit.

Samantha Edwards, chief development officer at Facing Hunger Foodbank, said as a nonprofit, the food bank relies on grants and donations to feed as many people as possible in its service area.

Every $1 raised can help Facing Hunger to provide nine meals throughout its service area. Monetary donations can be turned into shelf stable items, meats and fresh produce for people and families in need.

“So, if somebody donates $10, that’s them providing 90 meals to their neighbors in need,” Edwards said.
