Starting November 1st, a collection drive for warm coats, hats, gloves, and socks is being held by United Way of Nevada County for those in our community who need them the most. Donate these much-needed items so that others in our community can stay warm this winter. The majority of those in need are families with children who are just struggling to get by. This collection drive will help these households and individuals stay warm during the upcoming winter months.

From November 1st through Dec. 16th, warm coats, hats, gloves, and socks can be dropped off at the following locations:

B & C Ace Home and Garden Center, Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty, EA Family Services, Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce, Hills Flat Lumber, Law Office of Beau Mayfield, Nevada City Chamber of Commerce, Nevada County Eric Rood Center, Penn Valley True Value Hardware, Sierra Nevada Children’s Services, South Yuba Club, Telestream, Training Zone, Tri-Counties Bank (Grass Valley and Nevada City locations), and Westamerica Bank.

United Way of Nevada County is working with community partners to ensure that the basic needs of all our community members, specifically food and access to health care, are met. United Way of Nevada County envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their desired potential through healthy lives, education, and income stability.
