The Yavapai Reentry Project, a project of MATFORCE, has set a big goal: Raise enough money in a single day to provide 10 formerly incarcerated community members with a sober living environment upon their release from jail or prison—and we can’t achieve it without you.

Each year on #GivingTuesday, nonprofit organizations rally their supporters for a day of maximum impact. Following the retail events of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday provides an opportunity for people around the world to support what matters most to them and share that support with their social media networks. Please consider joining the charge to reach our transformative goal on December 3. And, since #GivingTuesday relies on the limitless potential of social media, don’t forget to share, tag us, and use the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #StayHealthy to let your followers know you support making a safer, healthier community for everyone.
