It’s that time of the year again to give back to your community. We are teamed up with the Marine Corp Reserves of Nevada County.

Please donate before December 15th and make a difference this Christmas. Remember you can drop off your donations at any of these fire stations: Ophir Hill Fire Station, Higgins Fire Station, Nevada County Consolidated, the Nevada City Fire Station, along with here at Peardale Chicago Park station 57.
