Collected at Community Involvement Day

On Monday at the Fairgrounds, the Nevada County Fair partnered with BloodSource, The Food Bank of Nevada County, Story Club of Nevada County, Foothill Lions Club, and Nevada County 211 (in partnership with PARTNERS Family Resource Center), to offer Community Involvement Day – a day to donate items to these non-profit organizations, while also receiving free tickets to the Fair. As a result of this day, 93 blood donors were registered and 83 pints of life saving blood were collected, more than 350 books were collected, 1,600 pounds of food (enough to feed 40 families of 4 for one week) were donated, enough school supplies were received to provide for 40 families, and 225 prescription eye glasses and three hearing aids were donated. Thank you to the non-profit organizations that participated, all the volunteers who gave of their time, all those who donated, and to Grocery Outlet for sponsoring Community Involvement Day.

Nicely done, Nevada County, nicely done!
