Did you know that Itoo Society, Inc. donates nearly $30,000 in actual donations and over $30,000 in in-kind donations each year?
As a non-profit organization, we strive throughout the year to support other charitable organizations such as Saint Jude Midwest Affiliate, American Red Cross, and Heart of Illinois Down Syndrome Association. We also honor our country’s veterans in various activities throughout the year, including hosting veterans and their sponsors for dinner on the eve of each honor flight to Washington, D.C. (since the inception of the Greater Peoria Honor Flight).
During the Great Depression our own Tony Williams was serving meals for up to 1,500 needy Peorians a day. To this day, we continue this tradition by preparing and serving hot meals at South Side Mission for hundreds of needy Peorians on the last Sunday of each month.
We have always done our best to be humble stewards of a blessed organization that our parents and grandparents left us. We ask you to help us support others throughout the year through your contribution on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration . . .
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
We invite you to join the movement . . . please help to spread the word, share our Facebook posts and email messages, and give this November 29 as we work together to shape our future, building upon the work our parents and grandparents began over a century ago and carried on over the years.
