Youth Center in Plainfield Participates in “Giving Tuesday”

November 28, 2017

The day after Thanksgiving has become known by retailers as “Black Friday.“ This is followed by “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday” for online sales. “Giving Tuesday” was founded on the heels of these three retail events but instead of focusing on consumption and spending, “Giving Tuesday” reminds us about the importance of giving keeping with the theme of Thanksgiving, a holiday that allows us to reflect and share what we are grateful for.  We at the Second Street Youth Center (SSYC) want to let those who are part of the Plainfield community and those with roots in the Queen City how grateful we are for your support of our institution.


SSYC offers a quality pre-school program for those age 3 to 5, an after-school program for those in ages 6 to 12 and a summer camp program. SSYC has been an integral part of the Plainfield community since 1967 and has offered a wide variety of programs for families and the community at large.



“Giving Tuesday” which falls on November 28 this year, commenced in 2011 and many non-profit organizations and community groups participate and those who provide charitable donations have shown an amazing spirit and creativity in their dedication to particular causes.


Specifically, SSYC would greatly appreciate if you would visit our Facebook page and click on “Like” so you will be notified when others comment and support our programs and activities and you may join our Facebook group. We are uploading a link to a video featuring a few families whose children currently participate in our programs. To find us on Facebook simply search “SSYC Foundation.” If you don’t have Facebook, you may visit our website At either location you will have the opportunity to donate and support the good work we do. Your contribution is tax deductible and the process of donating online is simple and your discretion is assured. By using the app for “Mobile Cause” you can simply donate through your smart phone. Simply text 414-44 and at the prompt, enter SSYC. You will be asked to specify the amount and then directed to your preference for payment; a receipt is provided.
