Hacienda Helping Hands conducts a number of events throughout the year in support of our campaign. Fundraising events, such as our Taste of Summer barbecue competition, allow for people to get together in a fun setting to support Hacienda Helping Hands with donations. Networking events, such as the Pillars of the Tri-Valley, allow businesses to interact directly with local organizations to help match support opportunities with the volunteer needs of individual organizations. Educational functions, such as the Tri-Valley Poverty Awareness event, provide a means of educating people on issues of importance in the community. Granting events, such as our year-end community celebrations, create a special occassion to recognize and support local organizations in their work and the people and businesses that provide direct contributions to that support.
