Residents can spare a square to help local nonprofits save thousands of dollars each year on toilet paper. United Way California Capital Region’s 6th Annual Toilet Paper Drive will take place 7 a.m.-7 p.m. June 12 at Cal Expo, 1600 Exposition Boulevard in Sacramento. Last year’s drive raised 229,485 rolls of toilet paper, the equivalent of nearly $230,000 in savings for local nonprofits.
The toilet paper will be distributed the following week to many of United Way’s 148 certified nonprofit partners in Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties. For more information, visit www.yourlocalunitedway.org/tp-drive.
