Random acts of kindness from the Gospel Mission will leave families with food for the holidays and warm wishes in the heart.
Free Christmas trees, turkeys and baked goodies await unsuspecting families as the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission once again heads out into low-income neighborhoods with a mission of spreading good cheer and warm meals.
As part of its annual Random Acts of Kindness campaign this Tuesday, Dec. 21, the mission will give away trees, 100 turkeys and side dishes to families and home-baked goodies to senior citizens beginning at 1 p.m.
Teams of employees and volunteers will meet at the Gospel Mission warehouse on 2115 Timber Way, Reno, before fanning out across several low-income neighborhoods to knock on doors to pass out the holiday meals to those in need.
Another team will target senior citizens in low-income housing complexes to give cookies and other freshly baked items made by volunteers.
This year, the Mission will have Christmas trees to give out to families who need one. The trees are donated by Ken Ferguson of Grants Pass, Ore., who operates a Christmas tree lot on South Virginia in Reno.
