EAST TEXAS (KETK) It’s been a long year for non-profits all over the country due to the coronavirus pandemic, and those in East Texas are no exception. Here is your opportunity to make a difference and give back to those organizations that do so much for our community.

East Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour day of giving that provides critical funding for our area nonprofits. This year the date is April 27. Donations open at 6 a.m. and will go until midnight.

The categories that these non-profits cover include: animals, children’s education, helping victims of sex trafficking, keeping today’s youth out of drugs and alcohol, and so many more.

Last year, even in the midst of a pandemic, more than $2.2 million was raised for nonprofits all over the area.
