Join us for #GivingTuesday! We'll have desserts, a raffle and lots of fun on Tuesday, November 28th @ 6:30pm here at The Canby Center. In response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together. Please bring non-perishable food to share with our community! An opportunity to support TCC will also be shared during the evening. #GivingTuesday
