December 1, 2020 – Through December 11, 2020, United Way is holding its annual Project Warmth collection drive for new warm hats, gloves, and socks. Donations will be distributed through our local nonprofit Partner Network and our programs Food Access Saturday and the High School Food Program to Nevada County residents in need.

The individuals in the picture are employees of B & C during last year’s collection drive.  B & C have been a part of this collection drive since its inception seven years ago. 

For the past seven years, local businesses have supported this program by hosting a donation box on-site, encouraging company-wide donations, and maintaining public donation boxes. “Distributing Project Warmth donations is one of my favorite holiday traditions. To see the impact of such a simple act is heartwarming. Without the support of our business community and the generosity of our residents, programs like this would not be possible.” Megan Timpany, Executive Director of United Way of Nevada County.
