Northern Illinois Food Bank plans collection at Geneva Metra station for Giving Tuesday

GENEVA – Northern Illinois Food Bank is joining in the national Giving Tuesday movement on Tuesday, Dec. 1, by offering an opportunity to double donations to help support its mission of solving hunger.

All donations to Northern Illinois Food Bank on Tuesday, Dec. 1 will be matched up to a total $30,000 by Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation and other anonymous donors. Donations can be made online at www.SolveHungerToday.org/GivingTuesday or by texting the word “Solve” to 91999.

The food bank will also be collecting food and funds from 5 to 10 a.m. on Dec. 1 at the Geneva Metra station as part of its Giving Tuesday campaign. Commuters and area residents are encouraged to take part by bringing monetary donations and non-food perishable items to drop-off locations at the station, at 328 Crescent Place, in Geneva.

“Every donation we receive throughout the year makes an impact in the lives of our hungry neighbors, but for this one day we’re excited to help our generous donors maximize their donation through this Giving Tuesday matching gift opportunity,” stated Julie Yurko, Northern Illinois Food Bank president and CEO, in a news release. “We are proud to say that we can stretch every $1 donated into $8 of food for neighbors in need, and on Giving Tuesday we’ll be able to turn every $1 into $16 of food.”
