Chicago, November 14th 2017 – Manufacturing Renaissance has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to
encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways.
Manufacturing Renaissance joins #GivingTuesday to increase its operational support for Manufacturing Connect program at Austin College & Career Academy and Bowen High School. MC’s purpose is to close the skills gap in Cook County area by connecting youth and young adults to careers in manufacturing. We considered #GivingTuesday because it is a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving.
