Give Thanks , Get Deals,  then Give Back

#GivingTuesday is December 2, 2014 - the Tuesday after Thanksgiving

 CHAD is participating in #GivingTuesday which is a global day dedicated to inspiring people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and give back to the charities and causes they support to help create a better world. 

#GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because it reminds us that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism. 

Help support CHAD's continue its mission and serve the affordable housing needs of the many hardworking individuals and families that are the backbone of our communities.
