On this Giving Tuesday, people across the country will be offering their time, money, resources and help to those in need -- but apparently not so much here in Arizona.

According to a WalletHub study that looked at a variety of factors, Arizona ranked dead last on a list ranking states on how charitable and giving they are.

We were in the 46th spot for the percent of the population who donated time, only ahead of Mississippi, Rhode Island, Nevada and Kentucky. We also ranked in the 48th spot for the percent of charities per capita and percent of population collecting/distributing food.

Weighing the categories together, the study placed Arizona overall at position 50.

Minnesota, Utah and Maryland were the overall most charitable states.
