ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (NBC26) -- It's officially the season of giving with 'Giving Tuesday.' The first Tuesday of December is recognized as 'Giving Tuesday.' It got started in 2012 as a day to do more good in local communities. During the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

NBC26 Today had a handful of local non-profits stop by to share more about how folks can give back. We spoke with Patti Habeck from Feeding America, Craig Robbins with Paul's Pantry, Anna Burnette from Service League of Green Bay and Alexa Priddy with St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter. You can watch the above videos to learn more about each organization.

When you donate to Feeding America, Alliant Energy is offering a "Match Day" for 'Giving Tuesday' so anything donated today will be matched by them.

Sargento Foods is giving a $1 for each time someone 'shares' or 'likes' its post on Facebook up to $20,000. You can find the post below. Click it and give it a 'like' to donate!

Service League of Green Bay is always looking for donations and funds to help improve the lives of others in our community. On December 10th, Service League of Green Bay will have a table at the Barnes and Noble in Ashwaubenon from 9 a.m. until close where you can learn more about them over some coffee and they can gift wrap your Christmas gifts for you! They appreciate any donation, but if you need to finish any Christmas shopping you can grab a coupon from their table. It doesn't give you a discount, but Barnes and Noble will give a kickback from your sale to the Service League.

St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter is hosting a "Giving Tuesday" Celebration! It takes place December 3rd at Badger State Brewing Company from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. There will plenty of games and raffles to bid on to benefit the shelter.
