GA Gives Day is November 13, 2013.

November 13 is GA Gives Day, a collaborative effort by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN), public relations firms, advertising agencies, state agencies, businesses and participating nonprofits, including Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency.

The idea is to draw attention to the important role the Peach State’s non-profit organizations play in our lives and those of our neighbors and to encourage our fellow Georgians to support these worthy causes. Please join us and support ACSS by donating or becoming a fundraiser.
