Big Day of Service is a grassroots, all-volunteer led initiative to make a positive impact in Orangevale and Fair Oaks. A group of community leaders -- including representatives from County Supervisor Sue Frost’s office, as well as individual leaders, local organizations, businesses, and churches -- has been planning the event and is looking for project suggestions as well as more project leaders and volunteers. We believe that communities get better when they serve together, and everyone can play a role in making this happen.

NEW! Partnership with the 2020 Census
Looking for an opportunity to unleash your inner changemaker? Make the world a better place by participating in an event that happens only every ten years, the United States 2020 Census. Girl Scouts have the power to shape the future of their communities on April 1 by encouraging their families and friends to fill out a simple questionnaire. Here at Girl Scouts Heart of Central California (GSHCC), we have developed a way for Girl Scouts to earn a special Census patch. (See below for details.)
The goal of the 2020 Census is to count every person in the country.
Participation can make a difference in how much money the federal
government can give back to your community to help fund: housing,
health clinics, school breakfast and lunch programs, meals on wheels
programs for seniors, veteran programs, roads, transit, preschools,
mental health programs, shelters, parks and so much more.
The U.S. 2020 Census is a questionnaire that is less than 12 questions. All households in the United States will receive their census in March. The census can be done online, by phone, or by mail. All information submitted is confidential and secure. The deadline to submit your 2020 Census form is April 30.
Girl Scouts: Earn the 2020 Census Patch!
Once your family’s Census questionnaire has been submitted, and you have done one of the activities listed below, please fill out the form so we can send you an exclusive patch being offered for the first time by GSHCC.
Thanks, Girl Scouts, for your support of the United States 2020 Census!
