Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable side of the holiday seasonPosted: Updated:
Today is Giving Tuesday, and students at a local college are helping families in need.
St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkill is hosting an event called Santa Fest today where they will accept food donations.
The goal of the event is to provide gifts to children in low-income families in Rockland County.
Giving Tuesday is an international movement that started in 2012 to counter to the commercialization and consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to help people focus on end-of-year giving.
