2015 Construction Food Drive to Benefit Evelyn Mount’s Community Outreach


For 30-plus years, Evelyn Mount has provided holiday meals to thousands of Reno and Sparks families through the program she and her late husband Leon founded. For the 17th year, member firms of the Nevada Chapter of the Associated General Contractors (AGC), coordinated by the Community Awareness/Special Events Committee, will drop off food-stuffs collected from these companies:

  • Nevada State Development
  • Averill Consulting
  • Silver State Masonry
  • CORE Construction
  • Square One Solutions
  • US Bank
  • CFA, Inc.
  • Atkins
  • Black Eagle Consulting
  • Alorica, Inc.
  • Blackhawk Network
  • Construction Materials Engineering, Inc.
  • Sun State Equipment

The donation will be delivered in the bucket of a loader donated by Granite Construction and loaded at 10:30 a.m. in the empty lot on Fantastic Street. Hard Hat Santa will also be there to help deliver the food. The Nevada Chapter not only donates food to Mounts’ program, but has also purchased a truck, and helped organize and build storage facilities at the Mount home in the past.

In 1999, the Nevada Chapter honored the Mounts’ decades of community service with a special SIR Award recognizing their Skill, Integrity and Responsibility.
