Throughout Northern Illinois, families have been impacted by the global pandemic leaving them with limited funds to put food on the table. It’s because of kind donors like you that our neighbors aren’t left hungry and in need of groceries. Dec 1, 2020 is GivingTuesday, our biggest fundraising day of the year!
Jewel-Osco has committed to a matching challenge gift of $1 MILLION to Northern Illinois Food Bank – dollar for dollar starting November 23 – for the holiday season! That means your gift can DOUBLE in impact to help provide twice as much food for our neighbors who continue to struggle.
From now until the end of the year, a gift of $1 can double in value to help provide $16 worth of groceries! Any amount you give can help provide twice as many holiday meals for children, hardworking parents and seniors on a fixed budget.
Composites One, Shirley & Steve Dehmlow, and Blistex will match donations on GivingTuesday totaling $40,000 to Northern Illinois Food Bank. This amount will be used to multiply the impact of gifts received in response to this campaign. Gifts received in excess of this amount will still help provide food and groceries for those in need.
Your gift will support our entire mission. All contributions are tax-deductible. To make a gift by mail, send your check made out to Northern Illinois Food Bank to 273 Dearborn Court, Geneva, IL 60134. To make a gift by phone, call (630) 443-6910.
