Hundreds Served At Reno Charities On Thanksgiving

Reno charities served hundreds of homeless and needy people this Thanksgiving, and some also received coats for the cold weather.

The Reno Sparks Gospel Mission began serving breakfast at 6:30 a.m. Thursday, and a line was forming before dawn.

Mission manager Karl Creamer said more than 1,100 people were fed a breakfast of eggs, bacon and pancakes. Coats donated by local churches were provided to all who needed one.

"We have a lot of coats and lot of people who need them," Creamer said.

At the St. Vincent's Dining Room, a traditional Thanksgiving feast was served at noon.

They expected to serve 900 people. St. Vincent's is run by Catholic Community Services of Northern Nevada.

"We take care of everyone," said Ray Trevino, the dinning room manager for 18 years. "If there's more, we'll take care of them."

The Community Outreach Program, coordinated by Reno's Evelyn Mount, also supplied thousands of food packages to needy families.
