Make Someone's Wishes Come True


Autumn is coming to a close, and the smell of winter is in the air. This time of year conjures up roaring fires, endless cups of hot cocoa with bobbing bits of marshmallow, and crisp leaves underfoot.  Keep the holiday cheer going and make the short drive to Placerville to visit United Way California Capital Region nonprofit partner, The Center for Violence-Free Relationships.

  The Center’s Adopt-a-Family program is in full swing and needs your help with items on its wish list.  Gather up your spare change from the couch cushions or dip into your quarter fund in the car, and make a family’s life easier with postage stamps, 2012 calendars, granola bars and tissues, for a start.  Can’t make an in-person appearance?  Contact the Center for its wish list at or call (530) 626-1450 or (916) 939-4464.
