Donation Day Thank You

The Grass Valley Ladies Relief Society would like to say thank you to everyone that participated in this year’s Donation Day on Friday, Dec. 21, in downtown Grass Valley.

Unfortunately, due to the weather the local school children were unable to march, but I would like to thank the Marine Corps, the Grass Valley Fire Department, the bag pipers and the Ladies of the GV Ladies Relief Society who did march the streets of downtown Grass Valley, with their presence in town we collected many additional cans of food and monetary donations. Thank you to all the businesses and individuals that contributed to this.

Also thank you to all of the local schools that organize a school can drive, without this contribution donation day could not happen. What a wonderful lesson we are teaching our local children on giving.

I would also like to thank all of the business who help in an array of different ways to help us fulfill our mission of serving those in need in our community.

Thank you also to the Nevada County Probation Department, the FFA Students, and the Native Sons and to the many individuals that help sort and fill the many food boxes that are given away. This year we gave to over a 150 families in our local area thanks to all who support this worthy cause.

Again thank you to everyone that contributed to the Grass Valley Ladies Relief Society Donation Day this year.

Cathy Clemo. president
