February is upon us and love is in the air for Chicas Latinas de Sacramento members, volunteers, and beneficiaries! Not feel’n the love? We have plenty to share…
We’ll start by showing some love to our Chicas Latinas’ Estrella de Mes: Enero / Star of the Month for January, Susana Becerra! Congrats Susana and thank you for all you do. Check out her Q&A here.
Next, help us show some love to Sacramento area children! Sponsorship information has been released for our 2018 “Starting Off on the Right Foot” shoe drive, benefiting D.W. Babcock Elementary School. Contact us for more information and/or to join in on the fun — planning is underway for 2018 drive events! Sponsorship deadline is fast approaching.
If you’re more the hands-on type, sign up to help Chicas Latinas members rebuild homes in the Sacramento community on April 21, with Rebuilding Together Sacramento! Registration is now open, with morning and afternoon shifts available. No experience required. Shirt and food/refreshments will be provided. Men and women are welcomed to register for our team.
Follow the event on Facebook: Join #TeamChicas’ Rebuilding Together Sacramento, Rebuild Team! Or Register, here: select “Chicas Latinas” from team drop-down menu.
Registration is also open for Weave Inc.’s Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event and yes... Chicas Latinas will have a volunteer AND Hombre walking team! You’re not going to want to miss this ladies n’ gents. Chicas, sign up here to volunteer with us! Hombres, sign up here to walk with Los Hombres de Las Chicas! (be sure to select the correct team name).

Do you love our Sacramento Crisis Nursery volunteer events as much as we do? — Consider hosting one! We host nursery visits every other month (on Saturdays) and are looking for a few Chicas’ who can lead one (or two) volunteer projects in 2018! Our next event will be in April.
