The Salvation Army and other VOAD Members Activated for Reno Fire -
Northern Nevada VOAD members (Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters), including The Salvation Army, have been activated in response to the SW Reno fire.
Part of The Salvation Army’s mission is disaster response and assisting victims in the recovery process. So the Army is accepting monetary and household donations. Those who want to help with blankets, food and household items are asked to drop them off at the charity’s production warehouse, 2300 Valley Road., 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Other drop-off locations are The Salvation Army Thrift Stores from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Saturday. (Addresses are 1925 Sutro St. and 125 Gentry Way in Reno… and 180 Winnie Lane in Carson City.) Food donations need to be nonperishable canned food or packaged items. To donate online, go to www.salarmyreno.org
In other community assistance, Harrah’s Reno will be providing 300 sandwiches and a pallet of water for emergency personnel lunches today at the fire command center in Galena.
