United Auburn Indian Community donates $1,000 to support Divine Spark and Fight Homelessness

Nevada City tribal members from the United Auburn Indian Community (UAIC) along with members of other local Maidu tribes, service organizations and friends of William Kelly gathered today near the bridge where Kelly's body was found to remember his life.  Kelly was a descendent of the former Maidu Chief, who found himself homeless.

Kelly passed away about three weeks ago after his body was recovered outside during the tail end of a freezing snow storm along Miners Trail under the Broad Street Bridge. Friends of Kelly are seeking to rename the trail and place a memorial plaque in his honor. 

Chairman David Keyser of the UAIC presented a check in the amount of $1,000 at the event to Divine Spark director Dr. Thomas Streicher to assist in his fight against homelessness in Nevada County. Divine Spark was assisting Kelly and continues to help other homeless residents of Nevada County by providing free lunches, care for pets and other types of support.
