National Day of Giving May 6
Forty nonprofits from El Dorado Hills to South Lake Tahoe are participating in the National Day of Giving on May 6.
The El Dorado County Office of Education has given each organization its own giving webpage. To give on May 6, visit eldoradocf.org and click on "Give Where You Live." In addition, donations can be dropped off at the Foundation office, 312 Main St. in Placerville or visit any El Dorado Savings Bank. This day is about giving, but also about highlighting the wonderful work going on behind the scenes at El Dorado County nonprofit organizations.
