On Tuesday, November 29, the world celebrates the 5th annual #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving and supporting the causes that are important to you. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. On this day, we ask you to get involved and support Houston Parks Board.
Parks and greenspace are our passion, and we have 40 years of proof. Since 1976, we've completed projects in 300 of the city's 372 public parks, added more than 14,000 acres of parkland to Houston's park system and completed more than $115 million in capital park-improvements. As we're leading and implementing Bayou Greenways 2020, a large-scale project to transform Houston's bayous, your support is vital to our success. Please consider supporting Houston Parks Board in whatever way you are able to on #GivingTuesday.
