(WBNG) -- Today is Giving Tuesday, which is a nationally recognized day of giving that began in 2012. Adam Weitsman and his daughter, Clover, participate in giving every Tuesday on Around the Tiers.
As of today, Southern Tier Tuesdays is halfway through the year of giving to non-profits across the Southern Tier. Adam and Clover have given 26 grants and $52,000 to non-profits in the area.
Because not every group nominated for the grants were chosen, Adam and Clover took all of the nominations who did not win and gave them the chance to win $10,000. After drawing, Whitney Point Friendship Tree was the winner!
There will be more on Whitney Point and their reaction to winning this grant tonight on 12 News.
