You know all about Black Friday but have you heard of ‪#‎GivingTuesday‬? #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to supporting your favorite causes by making a donation online. This year PADS of Elgin has partnered with the Grand Victoria Foundation and ‪#‎ILGive‬ to encourage more people to support the shelter. Simply make a donation today, Tuesday, December 1st and the foundation will match it! You can donate by clicking here and your dollars will be used to:

  • Provide safe shelter, overnight, emergency, shelter to homeless men, women, and children annually
  • Ensure that people in crisis have access to 3 meals daily (over 40,000 meals served last year)
  • Help the neediest members of our community access resources such as case management, mental health and substance abuse advocacy and referrals, life skills, financial literacy and budgeting programs, and more.

If you have ever thought about making a donation to PADS, this is the day! Your dollars will automatically make twice the impact! Donate here and then visit us on Facebook to share our “I Gave Back” graphic to let people know you care and help spread the word about #ILGive and #GivingTuesday!
