Volunteering in Nevada County

I’ve been a Nevada County resident for over 21 years now.  After growing up in this community, and now raising two boys of my own with my wonderful husband, I have realized what an amazing community this is!  

I recently asked myself, what makes Nevada County so amazing?  And, after a moment of thinking, I realized it was the support, giving, volunteering, and sharing that the people in the community are willing to contribute. Then I realized it was time for me to give back.  Volunteering in Nevada County is now on my list of daily to-dos!  

Volunteering in Nevada County:

Soroptimist International of Grass Valley

I have recently become a member of the Soroptimist International of Grass Valley, who work to improve the lives of women and girls.  

Interfaith Food Ministry

Today, I had the honor to accept the volunteer position as Maintenance Director of the Interfaith Food Ministry building.   With my background in property management, I thought my skills, experience, and knowledge would be a perfect fit for maintaining the building that houses Interfaith.  While touring the building today, I came across this wonderful poster:

This poster hangs in the Interfaith Food Ministry building. Are you Volunteering in Nevada County?
“If you want to be happy for an hour, GO WATCH T.V.
If you want to be happy for a day, GO TO AN AMUSEMENT PARK.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime, GO OUT AN HELP OTHERS.”
