Kids Mud Run / The Lord's Gym Oroville | June 1

3570 Oro Bangor Highway, Oroville | 9am-3pm

 

The annual Lord’s Gym Kids Mud Run is FREE. The Kids Mud Run is a mile-long, obstacle course-style race for children ages 4-12.

Kids will run, jump, swing and crawl through over 20+ exhilarating obstacles--not to mention mud! The race is divided into three separate age groups (4-6, 7-9 & 10-12) with age-appropriate obstacles so that children can run together their friends and peers of the same age.

This allows the race to be safe enough for little ones while also challenging the pre-teens. A special school competition, know as the “Superhero School Bell,” allows children to rack up points for their school by taking part and dressing up in their school’s colors.

Registration is FREE before May 30th! So make sure to register today and save your spot for the most exciting Kids Mud Run yet! 

In between races kids, will enjoy Mud Fest with inflatables, food and carnival style attractions. Mud Fest will be running 9am-3pm at an additional cost.
There will not be a main adult race for 2019, due to resource and manpower being diverted into programs to support #CampFire victims.

Relay For Life -Chico | Sept 21

DeGarmo Park- 199 Leora Court, Chico | 10am-10pm

 

Opening Ceremony

Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who's been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year's Relay season.

 

Survivor/Caregiver Walk
Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn't matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on.

 

Luminaria Ceremony
During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It's a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope.

 

Closing Ceremony
Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It's a time to celebrate what we've accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward.

 

MORE INFO | Go register early and get ready for a great fundraising season.

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE), in cooperation with your community high school, is looking for local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from a variety of countries: Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Japan, to name a few.
 

ASSE students are enthusiastic and excited to experience American culture while they practice their English. They also love to share their own culture and language with their host families. Host families welcome these students into their family, not as a guest, but as a family member, giving everyone involved a rich cultural experience.

Students are eager to learn about their American host family, so begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter today!

 

Founded by the Swedish National Department of Education, ASSE International (formerly American Scandinavian Student Exchange) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, public benefit organization. ASSE is officially designated as an exchange visitor program by the United States Department of State.
 

See Something, Say Something

Across the country, in our communities, we share everyday moments with our neighbors, family, coworkers, and friends.  We go to work or school, the grocery store, or the gas station.  It's easy to overlook these routine moments, but as you’re going about your day if you see something that doesn't seem quite right, say something.  By being alert and reporting suspicious activity to your local law enforcement you can protect your family, neighbors, and community.
"If You See Something, Say Something®" engages the public in protecting our homeland through awareness-building, partnerships, and other outreach.

 

https://www.dhs.gov/see-something-say-something

Reporting Suspicious Activity
To report suspicious activity please contact your local law enforcement. Describe specifically what you observed, including:
 - Who or what you saw;
 - When you saw it;
 - Where it occurred; and
 - Why it's suspicious.
If there is an emergency, call 9–1–1.

Become a CASA Volunteer!

NVCSS CASA will be holding two CASA training sessions in early 2018.
Training in Shasta County [Redding] begins on Wednesday, January 10 and will be held in the CASA Center at NVCSS at 2400 Washington Avenue.
Butte County training [Chico] begins on Thursday, February 1 and will take place at
our office in Chico.


CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!

Download the volunteer application by visiting the NVCSS website: http://www.nvcss.org/casa
Application deadline for Shasta’s training is January 4; Butte’s deadline is January 27.

Northern California Residents Disaster Assistance

Residents of Butte, Lake, Mendocino and Yuba who suffered damage or losses from the devastating fires that began October 8, 2017 and continue to burn, can now register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), if they are able to do so.
The amendment to the presidential disaster declaration of October 10, 2017 now makes federal assistance available to eligible individuals and business owners in a total of six northern California counties: Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba.
Survivors who primarily reside in one of the six designated counties can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov or by phone at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may call 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
Applicants will be asked for the following information:
•    Social Security number
•    Address of the damaged primary residence
•    Description of the damage
•    Information about insurance coverage
•    A current contact telephone number
•    An address where they can receive mail
•    Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit of funds
Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for:
•    Temporary housing
•    Essential home repairs
•    Uninsured and underinsured personal property losses
•    Other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.


Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available for businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters. Disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries.


FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Registering with FEMA is required for federal aid, even if a survivor has registered with another disaster-relief organization, such as the American Red Cross.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.

Become a Foster Parent

CHANGE A LIFE, BECOME A FOSTER PARENT!

In Butte County alone there are over 500 children in Foster Care. Many of these children sadly are placed in homes outside of their community because there aren’t enough foster parents in Butte County. DREAMS don’t work unless you DO, adopt a child to make their dreams come TRUE!

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a foster parent please call     1-844-540-8618 or you can also visit http://www.mountaincircle.org/adopt.htm  Don’t forget to check Mountain Circle’s daily updates posted on our Facebook page!
