Hungry Gives Back
I am SO excited to share with you the charities that have been chosen for Hungry in Reno’s Hungry Gives Back program!
I couldn’t choose just one so I chose 3, which is exciting for you because now, when you attend an event, you’ll get to choose which of these VERY worthy LOCAL nonprofits will receive a portion of your ticket price.
I’d like to share a little about each (in alphabetical order):
Reno Ice: The Jennifer M. O’Neal Community Ice Arena: The Greater Reno Community Ice Skating Association (GRCISA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization seeking to generate community support for construction of Reno Ice – a state of the art ice sports arena in south Reno.
Once completed, Reno Ice will offer the northern Nevada community various programs such as private lessons, public ice skating sessions, hockey leagues, broomball, curling, trade shows, tournaments, performances, figure skating, private parties and special events on and off of the ice.
The only of its kind in greater Reno-Sparks, the new center will contribute to the economic health of the community by attracting tourism, providing a new event venue, as well as offering a gathering place for families, groups and organizations.
STEP2: STEP2 is a private, local nonprofit in Reno, Nevada. This organization was started in Reno and is the only STEP2 in the country; they are not part of a national affiliation.
STEP2’s vision is to save lives and restore families by providing comprehensive, coordinated services related to the treatment and recovery of chemically dependent women and their families, resulting in sustainable self-sufficiency.
When a woman is ready to leave STEP2, she is clean and sober, she is gainfully employed, she has reunified with her children and she has learned life skills that will allow her to create and maintain a better life for herself and her family.
Veterans Guest House: The Veterans Guest House is a local Reno nonprofit organization which provides United States Military service veterans and their families temporary overnight accommodations while they are receiving treatment at a medical facility in the Reno/Sparks area.
Typically, their guests reside at least 35 miles away, are independent and able to care for themselves or have a caregiver.
They offer all the comforts of home with semi-private bedrooms and baths, a continental breakfast, kitchen facilities where guests can make their own meals, a living and media room.
Please check each one of these local nonprofits out and, if you’re so inclined, show them some love!
