Furry Friends Fundraiser Donates Over $4,000 to Local Animal Shelters

With a combination of funds raised from the Night of Niceness, our General Fund and the 2019 Furry Friends Fundraiser we were able to donate over $4,000 this year to benefit four different organizations!

This project led by Presley is able to support a variety of organizations including Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Foothills K-9 Association, Front Street Animal Shelter, and Friends of Camp Fire Cats.

All of these volunteer led groups are doing amazing work helping animals that have been abandoned, displaced, or retired from duty. Your support will help pay for medical costs and adoption fees for each of these causes. That means dozens or even hundreds of animals will be better off because of YOU!

Thank you for your niceness!

Furry Friends Fundraiser Kickoff

We wanted to update you on our latest project – the Furry Friends Fundraiser. This is our fourth year for this project but with your support this year we are able to add a new organization. We will be helping pay for supplies and adoption fees at two of our favorite shelters: Itsie Bitsie Rescue & Front Street Animal Shelter. And we’re excited to add Foothills K9 Association to our project who provide support for retired police dogs.

All three of these organizations do amazing work throughout the greater Sacramento Region with little funding lots of volunteers.Our fundraiser will provide much needed food, supplies, medicine and also help cover adoption fees and medical costs as well. 

As always, 100% of your generous donation will be used for this project. If you are interested in learning more you can watch our video or visit our donation pageThank you for your niceness!

Over 100 Volunteers Participate in the 4th Annual Help the Homeless Project

This year was our largest turnout ever for both volunteers and those that needed our help. We’re learning as we go, but we couldn’t be happier with how things went. Over 100 volunteers jumped in to help from the welcome station to those helping guests to our outreach team bring supplies to those in surrounding areas – they all were amazing.  Special thanks to our coordinators: Ian Tipton, Brandon Miller, Holly Cable, Cyndie French, Cindy Pratt, Paul Stephan and Margaret Campana.

Together with your kind donations, we handed out over 2,300 items including hygiene kits, sleeping bags, backpacks, blankets, shoes, jackets and more. Plus hundreds more clothing items purchased and bought by many of our volunteers. It’s easy to see how great the need is and why we need everyone’s help to bring clothing and supplies.

Our favorite part of the day were the stories of friendships made among volunteers and our guests. Watching so many of our team just spending one on one time with our guests making them feel special and heard. That’s what the day was all about.

Thank you all for supporting this project and helping it become such a success over the years! There’s already discussion of expanding to a 2nd city next year so stay tuned for that. To learn how you can volunteer and support the Tower of Niceness, visit us at https://towerofniceness.org .

The Tower on Good Day Sacramento – In Studio!

Good Day Sacramento & Cody Stark have been amazing supporters of the Tower since the beginning.  We’ve been lucky enough to have them join us every year to do a remote segment during our Help the Homeless project on Thanksgiving but this year we also got to go in the studio to promote the Night of Niceness which was really cool.  Check out the segment below!
