Entering its seventh year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Created by the team at the 92nd Street Y, #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose:  to celebrate and encourage giving.  The VLP is delighted to join the #GivingTuesday movement to kick off the 2018 charitable giving season and to help #GrowVLP.  

Did you know:
Brooklyn is the largest borough in New York City with over 2.6 million residents, and also struggles with one of the highest rates of poverty.

Nearly 1 in 4 Brooklyn residents lives in poverty, including 33% of families with young children and 25% of individuals over the age of 65.

In New York City:
99% of borrowers are unrepresented in consumer credit cases
80% of homeowners are unrepresented in foreclosure cases
97% of parents are unrepresented in child support matters
