Placer holds successful donation drive for military care packages 

Ladies in red

In honor of Veterans Day, the Placer County Human Resources Department recently hosted its annual Military Care Packages Donation Drive in partnership with Sacramento Blue Star Moms. This year, they deployed 12 donation stations at various county offices from South Placer to North Lake Tahoe, and Team Placer delivered! Thanks to employee kindness and generosity, several cars were needed to load up the treats for our troops. Here at Placer County we greatly appreciate our military service members and are thankful for their faithful service to our country. Check out our pictures from the donation drive!
