Nonprofits celebrate chance to sell Fourth of July fireworks
In recent years, nonprofits have raised tens of thousands of dollars in a week of fireworks sales. The money FIX’D raises this summer will be used to extend the reach of Fix’d, a Tracy-based network of veterans that provides advice and help to other veterans who are having problems getting services or who have physical or mental health needs.
