About this event
All proceeds will be split between Local charities:
Casa De Vida: The staff of Casa de Vida is here to support pregnant young women during this special and sometimes difficult time. We provide our residents with a safe home, caring staff, 24 hour supervision and assistance, nutritious meals, pregnancy and childbirth education, social service assistance, and so much more. Our goal is to build healthy families either by helping our residents to become the best parents possible or by supporting them in their efforts to find a loving, adoptive family for their child.
The Reno Burrito Project: The Reno Burrito Project was created with the intention to feed and connect with the houseless population of Reno. We understand that beyond food, people need genuine human connection to nourish them, and that both of these may be difficult for folks to get on a regular basis. In addition to dedicating every weekend to cooking, rolling, and handing out 400-500 burritos and essential supplies, we ask our volunteers to take the time to have sincere interactions with folks when we are out distributing. Taking the time to talk to folks can truly uplift them, make them feel seen, and also helps us to find out other potential needs that can be filled. This has enabled many of our volunteers to start their own projects, such as creating hygiene kits, cloth masks, menstrual supplies, clothing drives, and even a laundry service.
