As Nevada County Child Welfare Services reflects on the warmth and generosity that defined this year's "Giving Trees" event, the department  is overjoyed to share the tremendous impact the community collectively made. Thanks to the community's unwavering support, the department was able to provide presents for approximately 200 Nevada County at-risk youth, ensuring that the magic of the holiday season touched each and every one of them. Additionally, 104 food baskets were distributed to families, spreading not only joy but also much-needed support during this special time of the year.

Child Welfare Services extends heartfelt gratitude to the following partners and contributors who played a vital role in making this year's event a resounding success:

  • Nevada County Sheriff's Office
  • Twin Cities Church
  • South Yuba Club
  • Caroline’s Coffee Roasters
  • Training Zone
  • KidsZone (Truckee)
  • Truckee Library
  • Great Vibes Cleaning
  • Limitless Fitness
  • Northern Sierra Swimming
  • Staff at Nevada County Superior Court
  • Foothill Mercantile
  • Various County Staff
  • 49er Auto Repair
  • Booze Fighters

The community's dedication and generosity has touched the lives of so many, exemplifying the power of community spirit and shared compassion. Together, the community has created memories that will last a lifetime and made a significant difference in the lives of those in need.

A special shoutout and heartfelt thanks go to Sierra Academy of Expeditionary Learning, which went above and beyond by adopting a family. The commitment to making a direct impact on the lives of others is truly commendable and serves as a shining example of the profound change that can occur when individuals come together with a shared purpose.
