Operation Easter Basket

Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada is asking for your help to support Operation Easter Basket! Each year Catholic Charities collects donations to fill Easter baskets for local children who are living in poverty. This year, Catholic Charities hopes to collect a minimum of 800 Easter baskets by Monday, March 23. To donate to Operation Easter Basket, CCNN is asking community members to bring pre-filled Easter baskets for children ages 0 to 18, to St. Vincent’s Thrift Shop located at 500 East Fourth Street in downtown Reno or to St. Vincent’s Super Thrift Store located at 190 E. Glendale Avenue in Sparks. CCNN asks that donors please specify that their donation items are for Operation Easter Basket. Both locations are open Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Donors are also welcome to drop off Easter baskets at any CCNN drop-off center location. CCNN is also happy to accept donations of empty baskets, candy, toys, cellophane, and ribbon in order to prepare additional baskets. For additional questions regarding Operation Easter Basket, please contact Lisa Ross at lzross@ccsnn.org or call (775) 322-7073 extension 235.
