This year on November 29, Five Acres will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global movement to promote social good and celebrate giving. #GivingTuesday kicks off the holiday giving season and brings charities, families, business, students, retailers and communities together. This year we are excited to announce that Wells Fargo has generously offered to match every gift dollar for dollar up to $10,000 to buy a language arts curriculum for the Five Acres Therapeutic School!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by #GivingTuesday, November 29, to meet the Wells Fargo Challenge and raise the full $20,000 for the new curriculum.

The Five Acres Therapeutic School serves 80 children in grades K-10 with special needs and learning disabilities. Before they come to us, our students have many gaps in their knowledge base. This curriculum will help close those gaps and open the door to greater learning!

Your gift will provide a language arts curriculum that will reach 1,000 children over the next 10 years.
