Local Bakersfield weekly newspaper The Bakersfield News Observer is a returning sponsor of Give Big Kern this year. They really went all out for us again with a fantastic story series highlighting three different agencies in each of the three issues leading up to Give Big Kern Day.

Want to know how the value of the Observer’s in-kind contribution, which includes layout, printing, posting online, linking through social media, and insertion of the Observer Interactive App capability that adds another layer of web linkage and visibility to each story on the printed page? Nothing short of $11,000! This is a huge to Kern Community Foundation and the Give Big Kern nonprofits, especially during these difficult COVID-19 times.

Thanks, Bakersfield News Observer, for your wonderful support of local charities!
