Michael McBride, Manager of our local AAA and employees who are helping with the collection drive.

November 30, 2018 – United Way is holding a collection drive for new warm hats, gloves and socks is for those in our community who are in need. Donate these much-needed items and help everyone in our community stay warm this winter.

Who are those in need? The sad truth is that a great majority of those in need are families with children who are just struggling to get by.

According to the Real Cost Measure study done by the United Way of California recently, 30% of Nevada County households with children face a large barrier to economic security. This collection drive will help those households and individuals stay warm during the upcoming winter months.

Now through Dec. 14th, new warm hats, gloves and socks can be dropped off at the following locations:

AAA, Walker’s Office Supplies, B&C Ace Home Center, the Rood Center lobby, Grass Valley City Hall, Family Resource Center, The Union, Hospice of the Foothills, the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce, and also the United Way of Nevada County office.

Currently United Way of Nevada County is focusing on helping the community of Nevada County in the area of Basic Needs, including Food, Emergency Shelter and Access to Health Care. United Way of Nevada County envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their desired potential through healthy lives, education and income stability.
