The Salvation Army is getting ready for the Big Day of Giving on May 5 in Sacramento. To celebrate the 24-hour fundraiser, the nonprofit will hold two events that day. First is the Annual Appreciation Event at the Double Tree Hotel across from Arden Fair Mall. It’s a breakfast event starting at 8:00 a.m. where we will honor Bill Martin with the annual Spirit of Caring Award. Fox 40’s own Mae Fesai will be the emcee. The event and will feature music, inspiring stories, and giveaways. RSVP at

The second event of the day will be a Community Resource Fair at our Alhambra Campus in Oak Park. The idea is that it takes a village to change a life, so we’re bringing the village under one room for an afternoon. The goal is to connect underserved neighbors with the community’s social and safety net programs. The event will be free for the public to attend. There will also be food, music and fun for the whole family!
Attendees can RSVP at Interested vendors will need to RSVP via email to or by phone at (916) 563-3734. Vendor participation fee is either $35 per table or donation of a gift that can be used as a door prize at the event.
