Letter Carriers Drive

You did your part to Stamp out Hunger during the largest one-day national food drive on Saturday, May 11, 2013.

Locally, letter carriers picked up 185,850 pounds of food that residents left next to mail boxes. We are now sorting it in our warehouse where it will be distributed to needy children, families and seniors. Please check the volunteer page to find out how to take part.

Drive-By Food Drive

We celebrated the 20th Year of the KTVN Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive in December 2012 in grand style.

By the end of the 13-hour drive by food drive at Reno's Grand Sierra, the folks in Reno and Sparks contributed more than 75,000 pounds of food and more than $117,000 to help those who are in need of food resources. Our hearts are filled by the generosity of those who care so much.

This gift from our partner KTVN Channel 2 has rasied more than 800,000 pounds of food for the community's Food Bank in Reno-Sparks alone in the past 20 years!
