December 19, 2019 – United Way of Nevada County, with help from the community, held a collection drive to collect much-needed items for those in need. They collected donations of women’s, men’s and children’s warm hats, gloves, socks and coats. They received a wealth of items to be distributed to individuals throughout Nevada County.
