Giving Tuesday is an international movement, setting aside the Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year to dedicate to donating to non-profits. On this day, people all over the country choose to pause their holiday spending and invest in the organizations around them that are working to make their communities a better place to live.
Elgin has proven to be a leader in this movement, so mark your calendars for December 3rd and join us as we make an impact in our city, and for our neighborhoods.
