Tomorrow, Thursday May 2, is the Big Day of Giving!! There are over 600 non-profits throughout the Sacramento area that need YOUR help and support to continue their amazing work! No matter what size gift you're able to give, you are definitely going to make a difference in our community. With SO MANY amazing organizations it was hard for me to narrow it down to 6 to highlight, but below are non-profits I selected based on their unique mission and the work I've seen them do!
