Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday – two days that are good for the economy. Giving Tuesday is a growing Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday is the ‘opening day of the giving season,’ a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.

The Langley Gives committee, includes Langley Hospice, Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation, Langley Care Facility, Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce and the Langley School Foundation, Otter Co-op and the office of Rich Coleman MLA

Four Giving Tuesday events are being planned throughout Langley. The goal of the day is to raise awareness of the non-profit organizations that service Langley and how residents and businesses can get involved.

Langley Volunteers will be hosting a pancake breakfast (pancakes, sausages, juice and coffee or tea) for the Aldergrove / Murrayville area from 7:00 am – 10:00 am at the Aldergrove Legion. Tables will be set up for people who would like to eat inside, and a station will be set up outside for ‘Drive Through’ service.

Food and drinks are by donation.

Photo Booth – Take a pic or video and share your story of helping others in your community

We’ve heard that Santa will be visiting in the area and popping in during the breakfast.
