We have a beautiful new ADA bathroom thanks to Timothy and Alexander Salvos fund for youth, Piersons Building Center, OBD Plumbing, TI Smith Electric and generous donations from the community,
and we are chipping away at other necessities on a shoestring.
Some of our real superstars this year were
PG&E and Kaboom for the Playground
Darrell at OBD Plumbing for Building Maintenance, Security as well as plumbing
Pierson’s Building Center for donations and great pricing
Eureka Natural Foods – for the AWESOME opportunities to provide healthy nutritious organic locally produced produce at all WCIA community events. Vellutini Baking Company, Bien Padre and New Moon Cafe for help with food for our events. A big huge list of donors is on our webpage, and of course our 700+ volunteers that have shown up and helped out this year.
If you are in the position to make a small donation, all money is used frugally and responsibly to provide direct service to the community and is 100% tax deductible.
Thank You Eureka…what a year :)
