CHAMPAIGN -- Thanks to you, families across Central Illinois will have hot meals on Christmas Day. You helped us raise $17,299 for the Eastern Illinois Foodbank.

All day long, people drove up to give donations ranging from $1 to checks worth hundreds. Foodbank workers weren't sure we'd reach $10,000 because of all the donations already made to tornado relief. We blew past that.

All the money will help put food on the table for tens of thousands of people.

CHAMPAIGN -- WCIA-3 and the Eastern Illinois Foodbank are teaming up for Giving Tuesday. We're raising money and raising awareness for hungry families across Central Illinois.  

More than 100,000 people rely on the food pantries which partner with the Eastern Illinois Foodbank. Many of those organizations are helping people who were affected by the recent tornadoes. That's what is on of a lot of peoples' minds while giving.
