Correction: Big Day of Giving 2022

Correction: In the June newsletter we reported that donations surpassed last year's amount. This was an error for which we apologize. Actually, donations dropped this year compared to 2021. Regardless, we are very happy for your support.


We are extremely grateful to the many individuals, families and businesses who continue to support and donate to the SASF throughout the year. Without your unwavering support, SASF would have had a difficult time surviving the challenges of the past year. Thank you for the following donations received this past month:

  • Martha and Bruce Kushida
  • Anonymous PG&E employee donations
  • Randy Uda via Blackbaud
  • Ronny Okimura
  • Bob & JoAnn Fujita
  • Kimberly Dong via Truist Frontstream
  • Douglas and Betty Yamamoto
  • Margaret Ching via United Way
  • Alyssa Chow
  • Eric Wong
  • Norman Nishio, in memory of Mike and Stanley Nishio
  • Gerald and Diane Muranaka, in memory of Tsugio Tomono
