The Birth of a Movement
"I got tired of picking up people's trash, so I designed a program that wasn't a workday; I wanted it to be fun and attract people and keep them coming back."
Jeff Stephens, Founder & President
Who We Are
SAYLove, is a grassroots citizen organization formed in 2018 by Jeff Stephens, to care and support the Yuba-Sutter area while also serving as a vehicle for change.
Its main purpose is to enhance the beauty and the environment in which we live. Through community outreach, community projects and visibility SAYLove strives to make positive changes to our area.

How We Do It
Working collaboratively with individuals, businesses, service organizations, and churches, we meet monthly to perform community site clean-ups and beautification projects. Volunteers unite to bring trailers and even tools to perform duties.
SAYLove t-shirts are given to each participant to be visible for all to see. Logo'd signs are posted where we have worked. At the end of each event we all meet to socialize, recognize sponsors, have lunch, talk about our accomplishments and discuss where further action is needed.
Mobilize people and resources to promote positive impacts and change within our communities.
