#GivingTuesdayExcited for our Black Friday deals? We’re excited to announce a new “deal” for you and your community – #GivingTuesday

This year, Total Wine & More will join thousands of other corporations, volunteer organizations, charities, and foundations as a partner of #GivingTuesday, and we will celebrate the holidays by giving back to our local communities.

For those of you new to #GivingTuesday, it is a national holiday that started in 2012 as a day to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – December 3, 2013 — families, charities, businesses, and individuals will come together to improve their local communities and contribute in whatever way possible to the causes they support and help create a better world. You don’t have to be a billionaire to give back; #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things. Everyone is encouraged to be generous in whatever ways matter to them, whether it’s is volunteering locally, donating to a favorite cause, or reflecting on meaningful experiences that they have had.

Since opening our doors in 1991, Total Wine & More has been committed to enriching the lives of wine lovers, as well as being active and supporting the communities in which we work and live. Total Wine strives to be a responsible corporate citizen and make a difference in our communities through philanthropy and social responsibility programs.
