Food Bank of Northern Nevada Gears for Holiday Season

By  | 

RENO, Nev. -- The holidays are fast approaching, and the Food bank of Northern Nevada is gearing up to help a growing number of families in need.

They are asking businesses, groups and individuals to sign up for collection boxes and barrels to help gather donations of non-perishable foods from the community.

Picking up a collection barrel helps the already strapped charity save money, by reducing the number of trips they have to make in order to bring the barrels into town.

You can sign up Tuesday at Gastro Pub in Reno, or Thursday at Great Basin Brewing Company in Sparks.

Both sign-up events will take places from 4-7 p.m.
