By tsutter on May 4, 2022

You can help your community thrive! After two years that have brought tremendous hardship to so many in the Sacramento region, this year’s Big Day of Giving is an opportunity to rally around the organizations that make our area strong and that need our support. Thank you for being a part of this movement for good. Thank you for taking action.

Word-of-mouth is powerful! When you share that you’re supporting local nonprofits during Big Day of Giving, you help those organizations reach new audiences and spread their missions!
