UpKeep Participates in Giving Tuesday Now

Giving Tuesday Now

Tuesday, May 5, marked Giving Tuesday Now, a global day of giving and unity to support those impacted by the current pandemic. According to the website, “GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.”

Supporting Los Angeles Mission

Our customer, Los Angeles Mission, supports the most vulnerable members of the Los Angeles community, especially the high-risk homeless population.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday Now, UpKeep donated $5 for every donation our employees made towards the LA Mission. A donation of $5 funds 2 meals at the mission. Not only that, but the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation tripled donations made on this day!

Our Team’s Response

More than 40 members of our team contributed to the cause! It was incredibly moving to witness the generosity, compassion, and kindness exhibited by the UpKeep team. We’re excited to do more for our community!
