Why should you give to Give Local York 2020?

We understand that this is an unprecedented time for our entire community, filled with a lot of uncertainty. We also understand that the services these organizations provide have become even more essential to all of us. Our community is hurting and it’s time for us to show that we’ve all got each other’s backs.

In 2019, Give Local York made history by raising $3.2 MILLION for more than 300 nonprofits in our community. Together, we can support causes across our community that will impact local kids and families, education, housing, and healthcare, our environment and economic development, the arts, history, culture and more. When we all give local, we make a huge impact. We may not be able to celebrate together, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have reason to celebrate!

The International Men’s March To Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but it’s fun and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men’s sexual violence against women. By wearing women’s shoes, participating gentlemen symbolically put themselves in the place of women for the purpose of raising awareness about the dire effects of sexual and domestic assault in our community. Funds raised will help to provide services for survivors of domestic violence.
