National Nonprofit Day

By on August 17, 2022

On August 17th, National Nonprofit Day (NND) recognizes the goals and positive impacts nonprofits have on communities and the world.

Through nonprofits, awareness, research, and aid reach the people who need it most. Nonprofits also generate tremendous benefits to their surrounding communities and the broader world.

Here are some of our very own MIX DJ’s favorite Nonprofits:

SHERYL: Happy Trails Pet Sanctuary

Sacramento’s Volunteer, No-Kill, Cage-Free Pet Sanctuary.

Happy Tails values the life of every cat and dog by providing compassionate care and cage-free shelter for homeless animals and working toward ending overpopulation and mistreatment.

RUSTY: Special Olympics

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

MARILYN: The Shriner’s Hospital

Shriner’s Children’s three-part mission has one goal: to change and improve lives.

They do this by caring for our patients, conducting research to gain knowledge and develop new treatments, and providing educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

Both patients and health care professionals find they have entered a very special place when they step into Shriners Children’s. From the first moment, the experience is different. Their compassionate, patient-centered atmosphere immediately sets a tone of hope for the families who come to them.

At Shriners Children’s, they strive to help each patient achieve the best possible outcome. Their commitment to research helps them find new and improved treatments and contribute to the world’s medical knowledge. We continue to pursue seminal, cutting-edge discoveries that will help their patients live full and rewarding lives.
