ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — On Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, people across the country take the time to give back to their community by volunteering or donating to local charities. 

Across the nine-county Greater Rochester area, we call it ROC the Day. 

The United Way of Greater Rochester is celebrating 11 years of the 24-hour event that allows people to support local nonprofits on Giving Tuesday. The community has raised more than $8 million in 10 years, according to the organization. 

Last year, the event raised more than $1 million.

Here is a list of causes to consider supporting on Nov. 30.
