Volunteers and Donations Needed for our Annual Veterans Memorial Elementary School Shopping Event
On Saturday, December 16th, at 8 a.m. NNWLA will be hosting its annual Holiday Shopping Event at the J.C. Penney store in the Meadowood Mall. The event is a wonderful opportunity to provide underprivileged children attending Veterans Memorial Elementary School with warm clothes and presents for the holidays.
Each $100.00 we raise allows us to shop for another child. In previous years we have been able to shop for 50 or more children. This year, we only have enough money so far to shop for 25 children. Please donate and help us achieve our goal of shopping for 55 children again! NNWLA has to notify the school regarding how many students we are able to help, so please send us your donations as soon as possible!.
As a thank you, we will publish a list of our volunteers and donors in the January NNWLA blog. The donors will be acknowledged in the following categories: Gold ($200 and above); Silver ($100- $199); and Bronze ($1- $99). Any amount, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated and will ensure that more children can participate! Donations can be made through our website at nnwla.com/events or by sending a check to Jenna Garcia, P.O. Box 40953, Reno, NV 89504.
We also hope you will consider joining us that morning as a volunteer shopper. Our volunteers are paired with a Veterans Memorial Elementary student and help the child pick out their purchases. Most volunteer shoppers are finished in about one hour. Every year we receive heartwarming feedback from our volunteers about how much they enjoyed their experience. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer.
