Members of UNR/Geography’s Laboratory for Conservation Biogeography (LCB), Geospatial Lab (G-Lab), and the UNR Geography club joined forces tonight to help prepare and serve a winter dinner to some of Reno’s homeless folks. Cheesy tomato soup got it started and hot chocolate was the finishing treat for the evening for about 75 people.
We did this through a really great non-profit called We Care Volunteers. They coordinate dinner service about 4 nights a week at a location by 4th and Record streets. We Care makes it really easy for individuals and groups to contribute a little bit or as much as they can. We hope to get some more UNR groups to take part in one of their dinner services in the future. Please consider contributing your time, money, or cooking to this group. For more info, see the We Care web page ( http://www.wecarevolunteers.org/ ) or Facebook page (www.facebook.com/wecarevolunteers ).
It was easy, fun, and much appreciated. Thanks to the dozen or so folks who contributed during the dinner service or behind the scenes by purchasing food, supplies, and planning. And thanks to Amber from We Care for running the show.
