What is the "Day of Giving"?

Every year during the holiday season, we’re presented with countless opportunities to give. We share grateful hearts and delicious food on Thanksgiving and gifts of all shapes and sizes on Christmas. And this year, the opportunity to share this joy is also happening as a community event.  On November 27th, we will celebrate a Day of Giving.

Day of Giving is an opportunity for our community to come together to change lives for families across eastern Illinois.  We're calling on our community to help alleviate hunger in eastern Illinois by holding a food and/or funds drive at any time during the month of November.  All drives will culminate on November 27 - Day of Giving. We hope that you will join us in an effort to give back and provide the gift of hope to hungry neighbors in our community.
