RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV)--Hannah Hoobyar, the 14-year-old local who started 'Project Bear Hugs' last year after the Oklahoma tornado caused major destruction, is collecting once again.
Hoobyar collects new and gently used teddy bears to give to young tornado victims. She's doing it again, but this time for the recent tornadoes that tore through Arkansas, Mississippi and surrounding states. Those that wish to participate can drop off donations at the Atlantis Casino resort Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the north end of the west parking lot. Just look for the big yellow Penske truck.
