Giving Tuesday underway

After the Black Friday shopping sprees and throughout the general consumerism of the holiday season, Giving Tuesday serves as a reminder that other endeavors still need support.

Giving Tuesday launched in 2012 as an international day devoted to giving money, good and time to community organizations, charities and events.

Heritage Humane Society, Literacy for Life, the United Way of Greater Williamsburg and the One Child Center for Autism are among the 17 local organizations participating Tuesday.
