The 11th annual Erie Gives Day is in full swing, and local nonprofits need your help.

Fontaine Glenn was live from the Erie Community Foundation with more on how you can donate.

Tuesday, Aug. 10th is the day you can help out the hundreds of nonprofits in our area.

The phones have been ringing since 8 a.m. Outside, a local food truck, The CheesErie, is serving lunch and Mayor Schemeber and County Executive Dahlkemper are in attendance, showing their support for local nonprofits.

Organizers tell Action News they hope to break last years record of $6.3 million, but never know what to expect.
