Local humanitarian Evelyn Mount is known for collecting food donations at Christmas and Thanksgiving -- Easter is no different.

Mount is now working on putting together Easter baskets, complete with toys and candy.

She says she plans to donate them to needy kids. Last year Mount says some were even given to seniors.

Mount is asking for the public's help to get items to put in those baskets.

She's also looking for new clothing donations. She says she wants to make sure kids have new clothing to wear on Easter Sunday.

Mount says she's been providing the Easter baskets for decades.

She plans to deliver the baskets the Saturday before Easter Sunday.

Donations can be dropped off at Mount's house at 2530 Cannan Street in Reno.
