LANSING, Ill. (December 1, 2021) – This year, Giving Tuesday fell on the last day of November. The Lansing Journal participated in this global generosity opportunity, though we called our version Giving Newsday. It was exciting to see new people make contributions to support this community newspaper. Those names are included in the list below.

We want the news and information we publish to be accessible by everyone — and we are so grateful for people whose contributions make that possible.

Thank you, November supporters
