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 :)

    I asked the question wondering if the local hate for Walmart was so strong that it would keep them from seeking or accepting Walmart contributions, just so Walmart couldn’t say that they had contributed. Walmart gave out $873 million in 2011 to local causes across the country, and are generally willing to assist with good causes. The haters would say that Walmart is buying an improved public image, but so what? Hate shouldn’t hurt the community. I hope that someone in the know reads my original post and and can answer.

    ¨Hate shouldn’t hurt the community.¨
    Pardon me, I don´t intend to be disagreeable nor ¨Meta¨, but hurting the community is a key component of hate.

    Speaking of “hate”., now that David Tyson is no longer the City’s manager & can not sabotage the project any more han he already has….maybe he has time to volunteer???? Or maybe not. Ms. Benzonelli thinks so much of him, maybe she can get him on board??? Or not!
