More than 900 Easter baskets given out to children in need

This marked the 5th 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 around 500 children at this year's event, and delivered more than 400 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.
