Overview

Sponsor a Program or Event

For many, the fall and winter holiday season is the best time of the year – however, for some West Sacramento families, it is a stressful time. This time of year, when days are shorter and nights are colder, adds stressors that often put families in challenging situations; forced to stretch their budgets to the very max, many families make costly sacrifices, like going without full family meals, warm blankets, or coats for school.

That’s why, on Saturday, November 17th, we will host the 12th Annual West Sacramento Community Giveaway Day. This year, we’re hoping to serve 600 families, seniors and others in need, and we’re hoping that you can help us reach that goal.

By becoming one of our sponsors, you’ll be able to help us supply each family who attends the giveaway event with a full Thanksgiving meal kit, a baby blanket to each infant, and a brand new winter coat and small holiday gift for each child.

We’ve outlined some of the incentives and perks that your company can enjoy should you decide to become one of our sponsors. Regardless of the amount you choose to give, your company name will be included on all our event signage and in the press release that we will publish on our website. Please review our Sponsorships HERE to find the giving level that’s right for your company.

Why is fundraising so crucial to our program work?

It’s simple: funds raised through special events and drives literally fills the gaps between grants, government, and private partnership funding. In addition to supporting our ongoing programs, these funds allow us to execute crucial client serving programs like our annual Thanksgiving meal and holiday toy distribution, buy books for our STAR Readers Literacy program, purchase diapers, wipes, and other essential infant care items for young and at-risk parents across Yolo County, or purchase bus pass vouchers so our clients can travel to necessary medical or social service appointments. Parenting can be a stressful and overwhelming job; added stress of financial hardship, food insecurity, and language, cultural or transportation obstacles only makes it harder. Your sponsorship dollars are crucial to our abilities to continue to help families throughout Yolo County.
