GIVING DUPAGE DAYS – TOP WAYS TO GET INVOLVED!

Giving DuPage Days 2022 is here and we are ready to make history with this special event for our LOCAL nonprofit community!

Over 95 local nonprofit organizations are participating in this event and our goal is to raise over $550,000 for these worthy causes. Join our team of outreach angels to use your voice, influence, reach and networks to help spread the word, reach tens of thousands of people and create awareness for the local charities that do so much to help our local residents!

Together, we will send a message of hope to many charities that feed hungry people, provide educational programs deliver health & wellness programs, serve veterans, help families who are struggling, give seniors the support they need, protect neglected animals, provide housing and many other important services to our DuPage residents.

This event is 100% online, so help us break through the chatter to share about this amazing event. These are FREE and easy ways for everyone to get involved!

We’re looking to get over 5,000 posts before donations open on May 2 and go strong through the last day of May 6!
