Local company No-IP donated enough food for 70 families to Evelyn Mount Community Outreach on Friday, in hopes of helping feed those in need this Thanksgiving. The donation included 40 turkeys, 10 hams, 16 cornish game hen, 10 small turkeys and 25 boxes of stuffing.
“As residents of Reno we consider it a privilege to be able to assist the community in which we live and work,” said No-IP’s Heather Eaton, junior product manager. “ Evelyn Mount has been running a food bank out of her garage for over 30 years, taking donations from the public and putting together food baskets for hundreds of local residents who, without her work, would have no dinner on Thanksgiving.”
The organization accepts donations of food and gently used clothing year round. During the holidays they take donations for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, including turkeys, ham, chicken and the rest of the holiday fixings. Canned goods are also always needed and welcome.
“To give to such a fantastic organization and assist Ms. Mount in helping feed almost 70 families this holiday is an honor,” Eaton said.
Donations of food can be dropped off at Evelyn Mount’s house at 2350 Cannan Street in north Reno. For more information you can call 359-0807 or 356-2038 Monday through Friday between 11 am and 4 pm.
