Serving DeKalb County, IL Since 1993

During 2018, the DeKalb County Community Foundation celebrated its 25th anniversary with a number of exciting activities to celebrate, thank, and give back to the community. One of these activities included partnering with WNIJ to record listening sessions around the community. We call these Stories of Generosity. The prompt was simple. Each person was asked to define generosity or to share a story of a time where they heard about, witnessed, or experienced generosity (giving of one’s time, talent, or treasure).

Below is a collection of these stories. Each is unique and provides inspiration for the care and concern of others. Thanks for listening!
