Mobilizing Elgin Through Giving
As we face the impact and the effects, both long and short-term, of the COVID-19 pandemic, the phrase “We’re in this Together” has never meant so much. We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal our community in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together and show the world what being an Elginite is all about.
Join us in helping our local nonprofits who are looking to you for support and critical donations during this time.
