KHSL – It’s a day of global unity and civic contribution – today is “Giving Tuesday Now.” The annual day of giving has grown into an emergency global response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event usually happens on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, but because of the unprecedented need, it was moved up and renamed #GivingTuesdayNow.

In Shasta County, several groups like United Way of Northern California are participating in Giving Tuesday. The organization is urging people to donate to local non-profits – no matter how big or small the contribution.

“My message to the community would be do whatever you can, the smallest donation, the smallest act that brings us together,” said Larry Olmstead, President and CEO of United Way of Northern California.

United Way of Northern California said it’s already received several donations today. There’s still time to donate, Click Here to learn how you can take part in giving Tuesday.

Dry conditions, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive high fire danger and a Red Flag Warning across most of northern California Monday. Winds will diminish and temperatures will warm up on Tuesday. We'll stay dry and heat up later this week. Cooler temperatures then return for your weekend.
