Sunshine Letter | BEAR League sends big bear hugs

Dear Sierra Sun,

The BEAR League would like to give big bear hugs to the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorp Partnership, particularly to Tess Braun and Brenna Blessing for providing volunteer hours for Cesar Chavez Day of Service.

The enthusiasm and dedication these volunteers provided was so appreciated as they helped us prepare for what is proving to be a very busy bear season. We are grateful that organizations such as the AmeriCorp Partnership are available in our community. They provide hands-on volunteer work, education and workshops in our area. And they do so with a genuine gusto to serve.

It was a pleasure working side-by-side with these young people. If Tess and Brenna are examples of the AmeriCorp values, we as a community, are truly blessed. For more information regarding the local AmeriCorp program please go online at
