‘Tis the Season for Giving Back – Giving Tuesday

Here are some local organizations, groups, and charities to consider donating to this Giving Tuesday and holiday season! Check out our roundup! 

South Boston Christmas Stroll – Get in the Spirit

The Christmas Stroll will take place on Thursday, Nov. 30 from 4-6 p.m., kicking off a month of Shopping, Dining, and Splurging at our local businesses and restaurants! The Stroll features Santa on an antique fire truck, followed by up-and-coming pop singers from MusicBall Entertainment. More than 50 participating businesses will be offering incredible savings on Nov. 30; look for the big red bow on their storefronts.
