2019 marks the second year of Blaisdell’s Nonprofit Choice Awards, a giving program set up to honor nonprofits making an impact in our local communities. Nominations are made by our nonprofit customers and finalists are decided through an anonymous ballot sent out to our entire staff. Again, this year, we recognize one organization from each of the five regions where Blaisdell’s has grown our customer base: the Bay Area comprised of East Bay, West Bay and South Bay, along with the greater San Diego and Sacramento region. As our business grows we hope to continue and expand this giving program for many years to come!
