It’s the giving season, and this year we’re asking our customers to support the neediest in our community by helping provide for basic needs such as food and hygiene.

For every purchase you make, we will give you the option of rounding up to the nearest dollar. All “round up” proceeds will be sent to two charities that target hunger on Long Island: Island Harvest and The INN. The two charities will use the donated monies to purchase their most-needed items at their optimum cost.  (Island Harvest is also our December Charity of the Month for the second year running…we choose them for the relentless energy they devote to making the holiday season bearable for so many! Read here about their Kids Weekend Backpack Feeding Program, ensuring kids don’t go hungry when they are out on school vacations.)

*Rising Tide will MATCH all Round Up monies collected between December 10 and December 31, 2018*

Thank you as always for your generosity!

Note: if you’re planning holiday donations outside of your rounding up at Rising Tide, do your due diligence first by vetting your favorite cause through this Charity Navigator. In addition to Island Harvest and the INN, some of our favorites are our former Charity of the Month recipients:
