Check Presentation at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 17

Cadets from Washoe County JROTC will donate $2,700 to the Veterans Guest House, tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 17 at 3:30 p.m. The Veterans Guest House has provided temporary overnight accommodation to veterans and their families who are receiving medical treatment in the Reno/Sparks area for 16 years. The Guest House relies on generous donations from the community and does not use any state or federal funds for the day-to-day operational costs of the Guest House.

Cadets raised $2,700 by marching in parades, including Veterans Day Parades and Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade, and encouraging parade audiences to donate to the Guest House by placing money in a large donation jar.

The check presentation will take place at the Guest House at 880 Locust Street at 3:30 p.m. Cadets will present the donation to Noreen Leary, Chief Operating Officer of the Guest House, Lt. Col. Dan Waters, Guest House Board President and other Board members.
