Child Welfare Services Christmas Appreciation


Nevada County Child Welfare Services would like to send a heartfelt and indebted “thank you” to all of the county offices, community services providers and community members for making the holiday season wonderful for our local families and foster children through their selfless donations. The community’s ability to come together each year to meet the needs of our counties most vulnerable population is greatly appreciated. The substantial amount of donations of food baskets, gift cards, clothes, warm jackets, blankets and school supplies lets our most vulnerable population know that our community is there for them and to ensure their basic needs are met.

Nevada County Child Welfare Services specifically thanks: Twin Cities Church Congregation who donated over 90 food/gift baskets for our families. We would like to thank the Nevada County Government Center, Brighton Greens Resource Center, Nevada County Superior Court Clerks, Nevada County Behavioral Health, Nevada County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, Foothill Mercantile, South Yuba Club, Training Zone, Caroline’s Coffee, Emily Adams, UsBorne Books Consultant, Hansen Bros.

Thank you to everyone who continues to help out with this worthy cause year after year, we could not provide these much needed resources to our Nevada County Families and foster youth without your generous contributions each year. 

In order to continually meet the special and ongoing needs of Nevada County Foster Children and local families, Nevada County Child Welfare Services will continue to accept donations. Valuable donations such as blankets, clothes, bathroom accessories, gift cards and school supplies are always welcome.
