Members of the Gold Country Welcome Club voted for their top three Nevada County charities and donated $1,000 to each.

Recipients included KARE Crisis Nursery, which provides emergency child care for children ages 0 to 6; Hospitality House, a 54-bed homeless shelter providing pathways to housing, dignity, and community; and Scooter’s Pals, an alternative to kill-based shelters, which provides foster home-based dog rescue.

The Gold Country Welcome Club, which is an active social club of almost 700 members, was established as a nonprofit organization in 1989.
