Placer Care Coalition distributed $10,000 checks on Monday to four local charities that serve the local homeless population -- What Would Jesus Do?, Lazarus Project, Roseville Home Start and St. Vincent de Paul.

North Roseville REC, whose volunteers help with the coalition's annual Raising Spirits fundraising gala, accepted a donation of $1,000.

Proceeds from the event translate into food, shelter, clothing, medical care and counseling for the neediest members of south Placer County.
