Dec 1 – Illinois Give Big on Giving Tuesday

Your donation helps the 8 food banks of Illinois work tirelessly providing children, women, and men struggling with hunger to access to healthy, affordable foods.

Every dollar donated to the Feeding Illinois food banks counts, especially on Illinois Give Big/Giving Tuesday when your gift for children's anti-hunger programming will be doubled.

With the generous dollar-for-dollar match by Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation, your gift on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 will mean that twice as many families served by the 8 food banks of Feeding Illinois will be assisted.

If you join in the festivities of #ILGiveBig and #GivingTuesday, please consider as part of your plan a gift to Illinois food banks.

The Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation and the Illinois food banks are especially seeking to reach individual contributors using online methods, particularly through social media channels, which is proving to be a trend in giving to address childhood hunger issues.
