Giving Tuesday

Want to do more for the causes you support and at the same time engage your employees, customers and community?

#GivingTuesdayCA is the movement to join each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is the, "kick-off" to the giving season. There is no "right way" to participate. On December 3, you can donate, help a neighbor, volunteer, or just spread the word. 

From December 3 to December 10 (excluding the weekend), the DBA will be participating by being a drop off location for three local charities; Safe Harbour, Whisker Rescue and Red Deer Soup Kitchen. Below is a list of items that each organization is looking for.
