Now that all that Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals have passed, area non-profits hope you can still give to their organization for 'Giving Tuesday.'

The Ark Crisis Children Center In Evansville provides free child care for any child 6-weeks through 5-years-old. This is the only child center in the state of Indiana, that accepts all children regardless of parents' income, or situation. Officials say, all of the children are provided with meals, formula, baby food, diapers, and they even have a clothing bank.

"So it's really kind of nice for a person who does support Ark, because they really are helping change the world
for a child, by making things better, and giving them a safer place," says Executive Director, Angie Richards Cheek.

Cheek says, they can always use anything on their Wish List, they also accept monetary donations.

The Evansville Salvation Army is in the midst of its most important fundraisers for the year, the Christmas Kettle, and Christmas program. "This is a program that not only funds Christmas gifts for children and their families, but also it helps to fund the soup kitchen and the food pantry all year long" Major Loren Carter adds, to support both of these fundraisers a year, it totals $400,000. Their goal is to raise $250,000, and right now they're at $60,000.

Carter says they're also looking for individuals willing to match their Kettle returns for a weekend. You can find more information on how to donate on their website.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
