We have a day for giving thanks. Two days for shopping deals.
Now it's time for a day to give back.
Be a part of something big! Help give hundreds of youth the gift of education this holiday season!
This Giving Tuesday, November 27th, and all the days to the end of the year, Operation Jump Start is raising money and awareness for Long Beach’s underserved youth.
Our campaign #givetoOJS allows people to share why giving back to the Long Beach community is important to them by sharing on their social media. Operation Jump Start believes a college education is one of the surest ways to break the cycle of poverty. Our current programs serve close hundreds of low-income students annually from the most vulnerable neighborhoods of Long Beach. The success of our programming and the impact it has on the community would not be possible without YOUR support.
3 WAYS TO MAKE A BIG IMPACT THIS #GIVINGTUESDAY
- Donate: Your tax-deductible donation directly impacts hundreds of Long Beach youth.
- Fundraise: Make your own Facebook fundraiser on behalf of OJS! Set a personal goal, share with your friends and family, and tell your circle why you love and support OJS.
- Give time: Become a mentor to one of our students in need of a role model.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT!
