Calvary Captain Plans to Pay it Forward on #GivingTuesday

From now until #GivingTuesday on December 2, the blog will feature a dedicated Calvary Captain who is playing a special role in Calvary’s fundraising efforts for this day of online giving. Tim is a Calvary Captain who is spreading the word about #GivingTuesday this year among his family, friends and colleagues. Tim told us that he feels strongly about giving back during the holidays and paying it forward. Thank you, Tim, for being a Calvary Captain!

Check back each week for a new Calvary Captain feature, and remember to show your #Calvaryspirit by donating to Calvary on #GivingTuesday!
