What: Washoe County employees collected more than 2,100 cans of food as of 3 p.m. today, Dec. 19, to donate to Evelyn Mount’s Community Outreach of Reno/Sparks. Collections will continue at the County until midnight Thursday, Dec. 20.

When: Friday, Dec. 21, 2012. Washoe County employees will load a truck with the food at noon and deliver it to Evelyn Mount’s home at approximately 1 p.m.

Where: The truck will be loaded in front of the Washoe County Complex, 1001 East Ninth Street, Building A and the food will be delivered to Evelyn Mount at 2530 Canaan St. in Reno.

Washoe County Clerk Amy Harvey, who has been helping organize the food drive, said County employees have worked hard to collect as many donations as possible.

“We asked all County employees that are able and willing, to meet Friday so we can load up a truck and drive to Evelyn Mount's to deliver the food,” said Harvey. “And we were lucky that one of our team members, Randy Amestoy from the Clerk’s office, is kind enough to loan us his truck so we can get all the canned goods over to Evelyn’s by approximately 1 p.m.”
