OKLAHOMA CITY – After the mad rush of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Americans across the country will be using their resources to help others for Giving Tuesday.

Officials say nearly a third of all annual giving takes place in December and the U.S. ranks second overall in the World’s Giving Index.

On Monday, WalletHub released its report on the ‘Most Charitable States,’ comparing the states based on volunteer rate, percentage of income donated and percentage of sheltered homeless.

Oklahoma ranked No. 5 overall in the ‘Most Charitable States.’

Researchers say that Oklahoma landed in the top five of the states with the highest percentage of population that collects or distributes food and the highest percentage of donated income.

Utah came in at No. 1 overall, followed by Minnesota, North Dakota and Maryland.
