RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS) gave $17,000 to the Senior Citizens of Humboldt County Inc. and the Pleasant Senior Center to purchase a new Ford F-150 pick-up truck with a “hotshot” pod for the delivery of home-bound meals. The vehicle and pod cost $36,808 in total and the Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) and Newmont Mining Corporation Legacy Fund provided additional funding.

The “hotshot” pod unit that sits on the bed of the truck includes a two-door refrigerated unit that enables the Pleasant Senior Center to transport both hot and cold meals and safe food temperatures.

Pleasant Senior Center is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality if life for individuals 60-years-old and older. The Center currently provides more than 70 Winnemucca residents with lunch meals. The new truck will allow Pleasant Senior Center to increase with delivery area and reach additional seniors in need.

The new vehicle will replace a 2001 Ford Ranger delivery vehicle.
