RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno Rodeo Foundation set up shop at the Kid’s Kottage on Saturday.

Racks of clothes, pajamas and toys covered the gym floor as foster children roamed the room.

“Being in touch with the community, donating to children and families in need, it’s at the core of everything Reno Rodeo stands for,”said Carrie Ann Sattler, 1st Vice President of the Reno Rodeo Foundation.

The Reno Rodeo Foundation collected donations for their annual Denim Drive at the end of 2022. 100% of the items they collect go straight to families in every Nevada county.

“This is an excellent turnout, both volunteers and families,” Sattler said.

One foster mom, holding a baby just a few months old, said it’s crucial to have community support.

“It means a lot, they need all the help they can get,” Mariah Brinson, a foster mom of 11 years said.
