KANKAKEE, ILLINOIS - On Nov. 30 people across the community will be taking part in Giving Tuesday. That means thousands of people in the area will be making a difference by donating to their favorite nonprofit, according to a news release.

One of those nonprofits is United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties. Every gift to United Way, big or small, stays local and helps people in the community.

One of the programs through United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties is 211, United Way’s 24/7 crisis response line.

United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties aims to raise $5,000 on Nov. 30.
