November 29, 2022
This year, we invite you to join us on November 29 for the worldwide giving movement called GivingTuesday. GivingTuesday is an annual global day of giving that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This special day inspires people across more than 150 countries to engage, volunteer, or donate to the causes they care about most.
At Alzheimer's Texas, we believe that giving back to the local community helps serve caregivers and family members for those with Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias. Our work relies on the generosity and passion of the people in our community who take action for good by donating and volunteering with us. Save the date for GivingTuesday to support Central Texas nonprofits like ours.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, classes are now virtual offerings
