Make the Holidays Merry and Bright for a Foster Child

Many wrapped presents under a decorated Christmas Tree

Nevada County Child Welfare Services is grateful to have the support of the community and other Nevada County departments in providing gifts to children and support to the families that we serve during the holiday season. Child Welfare Services’ Giving Tree program will be in full swing on November 17, 2021 with trees going up in the following locations:

  • Eric Rood Administrative Center
  • Brighton Greens
  • Nevada County Courthouse
  • Training Zone
  • Caroline’s Coffee
  • True Value Hardware in Penn Valley

Simply grab a tag that has the wish list of a local foster child, purchase the items, and bring back your unwrapped presents to any of the listed locations through December 17, 2021. Through your support, we hope to continue to provide presents to children and young adults served by our Department.

Community partners such as Twin Cities Church, Training Zone, Hansen Bros, Caroline’s coffee, True Value Hardware and a number of private individuals along with other Nevada County departments help us provide food for at-risk families and gifts for every single child involved with Child Welfare Services. Twin Cities Church is continuing to support families through Christmas Food Baskets which will be provided to select families. The Nevada County Sherriff’s Office will be hosting “Shop with a Cop” on December 9, 2021 at Foothill Mercantile who graciously has allowed us to do this for the second year in a row.  

For more information about the Giving Tree Program, please contact Nevada County Child Welfare Services Program Manager, Nicholas Ready at 530-265-1654 or
