Nevada County nonprofits will exhibit at the LOVE Building in Condon Park, 660 Minnie St., Grass Valley from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The free inaugural event is dubbed L.O.V.E., for Local Organizations & Volunteer Event.

In addition to the exhibits, food trucks will be available for purchasing lunch.

Also, Nevada County Concert Band will perform throughout the afternoon.

All are welcome to learn how residents can make an impact on our community by volunteering for local organizations.

Students who are required to do community service are also invited to attend.

The groups that are tabling at this event will represent a wide variety of issues from animal advocacy and teen peer support to environmental causes. Dogs Run Free, The Red Cross, Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition, One Source — Empowering Caregivers, Gather the Women and the Center for the Arts will be among those with tables and information.

The L.O.V.E.: Local Organizations & Volunteer Event was inspired by the over 700 local volunteers who came out to support Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign. This is a way to match these volunteers to local non-profits to continue to support our community. With that said, this event is non-political and the organizations tabling will focus on distributing information about their mission and recruiting much-needed volunteers.

This inaugural event is being organized by the Nevada County Progressive Alliance and the Nevada County Peace and Justice Center. Contact ncprogressivealliance@gmail.com for more information.
