Springtime opportunities to give back
As you know, we have a heart for nonprofits and a passion for the work they do. We appreciate them as clients, as friends and as partners in our community.
The holiday season might be when the concept of charity is at top of mind. But there are always a number of ways you can dive in to make a remarkable difference in the lives of local kids, families, and seniors year-round. Here are three of our favorite local causes:
Happy Heart Grams: To meet the needs of isolated seniors that may not otherwise receive a card this Valentine' Day, Seniors First in Auburn created Happy Heart Grams. You can help Seniors First deliver over 175 Happy Heart Grams to isolated, homebound and lonely Placer County seniors by donating $7.00 per senior or purchasing ten Grams for $60. Each one will include a handmade card and a special gift. Call Seniors First to place your order. (530)889-9500 x213.
