Emerging Leaders Volunteer Opportunity
6th Annual LIVE UNITED Toilet Paper Drive Distribution Day!

Article

Join Emerging Leaders as we get “Social with a Purpose” by volunteering to distribute toilet paper to our nonprofit partners. Then, we’ll end the day with some snacks and drinks at happy hour. See below for how you can get involved on June 19th!

Toilet paper: an essential, but often overlooked expense can wipe out a substantial portion of a nonprofit’s budget each year. Money that could instead go to providing 175 hours of counseling and case management for women in crisis at Wellspring Women’s Center, or provide 676 nutritious home-cooked meals for people who are homeless at Sacramento Loaves and Fishes. And that’s just two examples.

For this reason, United Way California Capital Region and FOX40 News are proud to host the 6th annual Toilet Paper Drive on Thursday, June 12th at Cal Expo! Last year, the community donated 229,485 rolls of TP making a huge difference for many of the United Way’s more than 140 certified nonprofit partners in Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties.

But how does all that toilet paper get distributed? That’s where YOU and Emerging Leaders can help!

A week after the collection, on Thursday, June 19th at Senior Gleaners, Emerging Leaders will roll up their sleeves and dispense thousands of rolls of toilet paper to United Way’s certified nonprofit partners. Don’t miss out on this rewarding volunteer opportunity, and help us ensure our area’s nonprofits can spend their money on services, not toilet paper.
