Y.E.S. must say No!

Y.E.S. must say No! After two years and $10,000.00 of funds given to our community youth we have run out of funding. Thanks to the $2000.00 donation from Rabobank we were able to fund soccer and football for this year. We would appreciate any donations you could make to the fund. All funds are tax deductible and go directly to the youth in our community for self enrichment activities. The Eleanor Azevedo Memorial Fund has been in existence since June of 2010. We would like to continue to support youth who would otherwise be sitting on the sidelines watching without our help. Donations may be made to Community Foundation of Colusa County with YES written in the memo area.
