Volunteer ‘Love Event’ in Condon Park

A wide variety of Nevada County nonprofits will be providing information from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the L.O.V.E. Building in Condon Park. The “Local Organizations & Volunteer Event,” also known as LOVE, will also include food trucks and the Nevada County Concert Band will perform throughout the afternoon.

There is no charge to the public and all are welcome to learn about how residents can make an impact on our community by volunteering for local organizations. Students who are required to do community service are encouraged to attend.

Nonprofits tabling at this event will represent 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 attending.

The event was inspired by the over 700 local volunteers who came out to support Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign. The event seeks to match volunteers to local nonprofits to continue to support our community. With that said, this event is nonpolitical and the organizations 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. Condon Park is located at 660 Minnie St. in Grass Valley. For more information, email ncprogressivealliance@gmail.com.
