“Hunger, Homelessness and Hope”

Valentine’s Day is as good a time as any to search our hearts for meeting the needs of others. The spirit of giving doesn’t have to be limited to Thanksgiving and Christmas, and we don’t have to go to Haiti to find people who need a hand.

The Nevada County League of Women Voters is hosting a panel of speakers who will discuss the great need that exists in our own backyard – folks who suddenly find themselves out of work or out of their home.

Speakers will come from the Nevada County Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Hospitality House and Women of Worth to describe the services offered by their organizations. They will explain how they accomplish their various missions and help Nevada County continue to be worthy of its reputation as a caring community of citizens working together for the benefit of those less fortunate.

It’s 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., Grass Valley. Call (530) 265-0956 or visit online at
