New or Gently Used Pajamas for Foster Children for Christmas

The mission of Project Sweet Dreams Reno is for all children to have pajamas so they can have a good night’s sleep filled with sweet dreams. The new pajamas help children feel safe and warm and provide them some comfort during difficult times. Donations (all kid sizes) can be delivered to Mary Elizabeth Hardy (775-233-7535) in Somersett or Jan Miller (775-250-7551) off of Mayberry Drive.

NNIC Help for the Refugees Arriving in Reno

Your donations for the new refugees arriving from Afghanistan have been greatly appreciated. If you signed up to donate online and haven’t heard from NNIC it is because the family is scheduled to arrive in the future but has not yet arrived in Reno. They will contact you when the items are needed. If you are interested in volunteering to help the refugees or donating items, text Amanda, volunteer coordinator (775-250-2135) or go to justserve.org for details.
