Food Access Saturday

United Way realized there was a need for a food distribution on the weekend, and filled that gap.

Grass Valley Free 2-day Health Clinic

Health care is a vital basic need for everyone in our community. For that reason, United Way collaborated with California CareForce to bring free medical, dental and vision services to Nevada County in early January 2020. It was a very successful event. We hope to host another clinic in the future.
