Please consider sponsoring an UPLIFT participant by purchasing a ticket to donate for participants to attend a “Benefit Concert for Humboldt’s Homeless” featuring Melvin Seals and JGB, on February 29, 2020.

To donate, please call (707-441-4248) or visit the Adorni Center (1011 Waterfront Drive) to purchase a ticket to donate.
