Today is Giving Tuesday 2021, where millions of people across the world celebrate the act of being generous. It is a global generosity movement where individuals can give their money through donations or give their time through volunteering to help other people or to support local or global causes, non-profits or charities near and dear to their hearts.
Giving Tuesday 2021 reminds us of how important it is to give back to our community.
Thankfully, giving back is a part of every day for us at The Leo House. Starting in 1889, The Leo House set out to provide a safe haven for weary travelers in New York City. While times have changed, we’ve kept to our mission and legacy of charitable efforts.
As we celebrate Giving Tuesday 2021, we want to shine a light on the charitable programs that help us care for our global community members. If you’re looking for a charity to support this Giving Tuesday, consider donating to one of the programs below.

The Leo House is offers a discounted rate to service members and their families. The Heroes Rate is available to individuals in the military, law enforcement and fire department.
