Kindness Spread in Nevada County

Flocks of Yellow-Shirted-Do-Gooders were seen in areas of western Nevada County Saturday as over 300 participants supported the annual Random Acts of Kindness Event. RAKE, put on by Anew Day Counseling Services, drew community members interested in supporting those in need in Nevada County. A group of Grass Valley Police Officers put on their yellow RAKE shirts and were picking up trash along Idaho-Maryland Road and Wolf Creek.

The officers were discovering all sorts of items… none that would be considered hidden treasures.
