Community Involvement Day Results

One week prior to opening day, the Fair partnered with BloodSource, The Food Bank of Nevada County, Foothill Lions Club, Story Club, NEO, Nevada County 2-1-1 (in partnership with PARTNERS Family Resource Center), and Sierra Harvest, 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, 107 blood donors were registered and 88 pints of life saving blood were collected, more than 700 books were collected (and 100 were given away), garden tools and supplies were collected, 1,800 pounds of food (enough to feed 45 families of 4 for one week) were donated, hundreds of dollars in school supplies were received, more than $600 worth of crafts were donated to NEO, and 343 prescription eye glasses and seven hearing aids were donated.

Way to go, Nevada County!
