As part of a global day dedicated to giving back, Ranch Hand Truck Accessories has agreed to match donations made to Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity on #GivingTuesday, Dec. 2.

“After the Thanksgiving family holiday and shopping days, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a day to remind people that the spirit of the holiday giving season includes community,” said Ranch Hand President Greg Chumchal.

Money donated on #GivingTuesday will go toward Habitat’s Youth United program, a group of youths, ages 5-25, who are raising money for the cost of the roof of a Habitat home that will be built in the spring. For every gift donated to Habitat on that day, Ranch Hand will match it, up to $3,000.

“The #GivingTuesday movement is transforming how people think about and participate in the giving season,” said Cynthia Staley, Executive Director of Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity. “We are excited to partner with a nationally-respected retailer based in the Golden Crescent. We appreciate that Ranch Hand supports our mission of building not only affordable homes, but communities and hope as well.”
