AFTER GIVING THANKS – LET’S GIVE BACK!
I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving filled with a harvest of blessings, good health, and time with family and loved ones. Now the Giving Season is upon us! I encourage you to shop local, especially on Small Business Saturday, and to consider donating to your favorite nonprofits on Giving Tuesday. We have so many incredible local businesses and nonprofits in Placer County and every dollar spent or donated makes a huge difference in the lives of so many.
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY | NOVEMBER 27
Local businesses are at the heart of our communities. Join me in celebrating and patronizing local, not only during Small Business Saturday, but throughout this holiday season, and into the New Year. Show your love and support your friends and neighbors by keeping your dollars in our community. For information on local shops in your community, CLICK HERE.
GIVING TUESDAY | NOVEMBER 30
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 to promote generosity and it has turned into a global movement. We have countless amazing nonprofits in our Eastern Placer County region, many of which run on shoestring budgets with small staffs and volunteers who work long hours. Our local nonprofits rely on our generosity to be able to continue to support their mission in the new year ahead. I encourage you to think about those organizations and causes close to your heart and donate. LEARN MORE
