2022 Leiman Match For Giving Tuesday
Nov 29 all-day
online

We have so much to be grateful for at the end of the 2022 Season. Thanks to supporters like you, Flat Rock Playhouse celebrated its 70 th Birthday this year. That’s 70 years of high-quality, hand-crafted entertainment and unique arts education experiences, right here in Henderson County.
In honor of the arts and the impact they have on our lives, we hope you’ll consider becoming a Monthly Donor this Giving Tuesday. Thanks to a generous couple, David and Sharon Leiman, your gift will be matched at $1.80 for every $1.00 donated, starting at $18.00/month through the end of 2022. Over 30 donors have already signed up to make a difference. Help us reach our goal of 70 donors to celebrate our 70th birthday! If we reach 70 monthly donors by Giving Tuesday, we’ll enter all monthly donors in a raffle to win a free concession item for every production in 2023! Thank you for supporting the arts today!

#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and a chance to support local nonprofits in the LGBTQIA+ arts community.
It’s the Season of Giving w/ The Blood Connection + Feeding the Carolinas
Nov 29 @ 7:00 am – 7:00 pm
The Blood Connection--Greenville

One in five people in the Carolinas don’t have enough food to eat.  As we enter the holiday season, November is historically one of the hardest months for food banks across the country.  Many North and South Carolinians are either looking for ways to help those in need or looking for help themselves. The Blood Connection (TBC), the non-profit community blood center serving these two states, is dedicating the month of November to addressing the issue of food insecurity in the region by offering blood donors a way to help those in need.

 

In the month of November, TBC will partner with Feeding the Carolinas – a network of food banks across North and South Carolina that works to provide a healthy, adequate, and consistent food supply – to promote blood donation and food donation.  Each year, Feeding the Carolinas estimates they supply food to more than 2.3 million Carolinians facing hunger.  Feeding the Carolinas also supports the Augusta, Georgia region, which TBC has recently begun operations in.

 

TBC needs around 1,000 blood donations per day to supply blood to more than 100 hospitals across the Carolinas, and TBC must ensure the shelves are stocked with life-saving blood products when hospital partners call. TBC has set a goal of raising $5,000 for food banks in November, with the hopes of helping neighboring non-profits stock their shelves, as well. Like the need for blood, the need for charitable food does not go away: people in this community will always need food – especially now with inflation at never-before-seen levels.  With one blood donation, a donor can save three lives and help a family in their own community have enough food on the table for Thanksgiving.

Throughout the month of November, blood donors will have the option to donate their TBC reward points in
the TBC Store to Feeding the Carolinas. At TBC centers, food collection boxes will also be placed out for
donors to give non-perishable food items. TBC is also looking for organizations to host blood drives
benefiting Feeding the Carolinas. Blood drive hosts have the option to donate $10 or $20 per blood donor to
Feeding the Carolinas. For more information about hosting a blood drive in November, go to
thebloodconnection.org/host.
