Serving Those Who Serve The Community

Sponsored by:

Sierra Nonprofit Services is a non-government organization that exists to help educate, empower and supply resources and tools to both individuals who volunteer their time and organizations or groups that serve and give back to our local community.

Donna Wilson, Executive Director for Sierra Nonprofit Services was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

According to Wilson, the group is driven to see local non-profit organizations succeed and will show organizations everything from how to form a 501c3 to supplying the proven tools for funding, marketing strength and staff training.

One of the services offered is to match individuals that want to volunteer with organizations where they would likely fit best.

Wilson emphasizes that is important to recognize those who selflessly give their time. They are considered to be the “Quiet Heroes” of our community. Without them, important things would not get done … like raising funds, building needed projects, distributing food and comforting those who are facing an emotional crisis.

These outstanding volunteers – the “Quiet Heroes” – will be honored at The 13th Annual Tuolumne County Volunteer Awards Ceremony on Friday (April 4th) from 12 to 1:30pm at the Sonora Elks Lodge.

This year’s event called “Hats Off to Our Volunteers” will honor the heart, work and love of those who generously give their time, skills and heart back to the Community. This is a heart-warming opportunity that will truly inspire you.

Tickets are still available to attend this special luncheon and are $20 each. Call (209) 533-1093 to reserve your seats. For more information, log onto

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
