NIAGARA FALLS, NY -- For the fifth year in row now #Giving Tuesday has connected people around the world who value service to others and the idea of taking a day to give back.

Here locally, #Giving Tuesday involved a number of activities, including the work of several dozen school kids from Niagara County who spent part of this day volunteering at Community Missions in Niagara Falls.

Photojournalist Dooley O’Rourke spoke to some of the kids who volunteered to find out what this #Giving Tuesday meant to them. Watch his story in the video player above.
