REDLANDS, Calif., December 1, 2019  ─ According to Giving USA, corporations gave over $20 billion to nonprofit organizations last year. GivingTuesday signals the perfect time for companies with charitable giving programs that support local organizations in Southern California to make a donation to a worthy nonprofit like Disabled Veterans Charities.

Disabled Veterans Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to fund local Southern California entities that provide services and support to at-risk veterans and their families, with an emphasis on eliminating homelessness. Disabled Veterans Charities offers several ways corporations can show their support on GivingTuesday, which falls on December 3 this year, including:
