RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Holiday season scams are hindering a new local non-profit. So the founders came to News 4 to spread the word about their cause.

Mindy Steadman and Karina Bowman started 501c3 non-profit Blessed Positivity in May to benefit children in need. They collect donations of clothing and toys to give to kids across northern Nevada.

But because scams are prevalent this time of year and it's a new charity, they've been having trouble collecting the donations they need to make sure the kids have the same, basic necessities as their peers.

Their first holiday toy drive starts Sunday at the Aria School of Music and Art, 3941 S. McCarran, Blvd. You can drop off new, or gently used, toys and clothes from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Are the "needy" kids their children? With no track record of providing for ANYONE else, potential donors NEED TO BE SKEPTICAL. There are many, many places to give and give and give for the kids. What about SENIORS trying to survive, trying to eat, who don't get all the stuff the kids get: seniors get all of $16 a month in EBT SNAP while kids get $16X per month PLUS free breakfast, lunch and groceries.
