Giving Tuesday: When Tennesseans Give Back

When Tennesseans Give Back

This year families, businesses, community members, students, retailers and more will all come together to join in the celebration dedicated to giving-- for #GivingTuesday - a movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the Holiday Season.   

#GivingTuesday is “an opening day to the giving season”, so this is a perfect time to give to STEP, Inc. – Tennessee’s Parent Training and Information Center. 

For 24 years STEP, Inc. (Support and Training for Exceptional Parents) has provided FREE information, advocacy training, and support services to parents of children (birth through age 22) that are eligible to receive special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  

#Giving Tuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things “to brighten the future of children with disabilities”.
