Operation: Easter Basket A Success
This marked the 4th year for Operation: Easter Basket, and once again, our generous community showed an overwhelming amount of support.
We were able to provide Easter baskets to approximately 350 children at this year’s event, and delivered an additional 450 baskets to families in need in communities all over northern Nevada.
The kids who attended the event enjoyed a pancake breakfast that was prepared by our wonderful staff and volunteers in the St. Vincent’s Dining Room. They were also able to play games and take pictures with the Easter bunny.
Thank you to all of the businesses, organizations, and individuals who donated baskets and helped brighten the lives of the children in our community.
Dolan Automotive Group Donates to Dining Room
We serve in such a generous region and simply could not perform so many services — in excess of 561,000 in 2015 — without the support of great businesses, individuals, churchs and community groups.
We recently had the chance to meet and thank the Dolan Automotive Group for their stellar support of St. Vincent’s Dining Room. Ryan Dolan (left) presented us with a check for $20,000 which will purchase 9,839 meals in the dining room.
