You stand in line on Black Friday and surf on Cyber Monday, so why not do something good for others on Tuesday?
This year, Serve Illinois is proud to partner once again with ForeFront and the #ILGive campaign to help Illinoisans give back to their favorite charities. Last year, donors gave $13.4 million to over 600 organizations in just one day, and we want to do even better this year!
Giving Tuesday begins at 12:00am on November 27th and will conclude at 11:59pm. Don't miss your chance to give back!
Serve Illinois presented 23 localities with honors for the 2018 Governor’s Hometown Awards program during a special reception at the Governor’s Mansion on November 20, 2018. The Governor’s Hometown Awards program gives formal recognition to communities that contributed to their community’s quality of life via projects that had strong volunteer support, met a need, and made a definitive impact.
Presented since 1983, the Governor’s Hometown Awards program gives formal recognition to those who contributed to projects that improved their community’s quality of life. These projects are sponsored by local units of government that had strong volunteer support, met a need, and made a definitive impact, thereby generating a positive outcome in the community and by extension, the state. The program is administered by the Serve Illinois Commission, the Governor’s Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service.
All projects honored received a plaque and a road sign honoring these achievements. LaSalle County was named the Governor's Cup Winner at the event.
