"The Bay Area has many amazing nonprofits that make a huge impact in our communities," said Kathy Young, Nonprofit Alliance president and co-founder. "'Stronger Together' is a great platform for bringing these organizations together to build awareness of, and support for, the very important work that they do."
The festival will feature a variety of activities, with a "Recycled Rodeo," an interactive art project, and a demonstration by the Crayon Initiative of repurposing old crayons into new ones. There will also be a diaper collection, food drive and a prize drawing for those who visit every exhibitor.
"This year's theme is 'Be Inspired, Discover Your Cause,'" Young said. "Many community members want to volunteer but don't know where to start. 'Stronger Together' provides a one-stop shop for people to connect with a nonprofit that matches their core values."
"'Stronger Together' is a fabulous opportunity for anyone who wants to give back to our community," said Susan Houghton, board president of Sunflower Hill. "Seeing all the local nonprofits together, supporting one another and focusing on the needs of our area, is extremely powerful."
"As a volunteer, I am continually impressed with the myriad of new organizations that have emerged to make a difference," she added.
