Big Day of Giving 2018

Sleeping bags are for camping trips and sleep-overs, not for living.

Every night in Sacramento, more than 400 children and young people do not sleep in a bed, but rather find refuge on a park bench, under a freeway or on a doorstep. Wind Youth Services provides food, shelter and lodging for as many of these homeless youth as we can.

Please consider a gift to Wind Youth Services this Thursday, May 3 for Sacramento’s Big Day of Giving. Beginning at 12:01am on May 3 and running through midnight, supporters can make an online donation to Wind, then encourage their social media networks to give – and share why you chose Wind Youth Services for a donation.

Big Day of Giving is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give—in the Sacramento community, in particular. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in giving.

Inspired by our mission – to provide supportive services and opportunities to youth experiencing homelessness as they pursue self-determined lives of stability and independence – Wind Youth Services will be raising funds to change the lives of children, teens, and young adults (ages 12-24) who are in crisis, on the street and without a safe place to call home.

Last year, the Sacramento community generously donated nearly $30,000 to Wind and it is our hope that we can top the $30,000 mark this year. Please join us!
