Harrah's Feeds Hundreds With Thanksgiving Feast

Thanksgiving may not be until Thursday, but in Reno, it's become a week of good eating.

Harrah's is feeding more than 1,200 homeless people at their annual Thanksgiving dinner Monday.

People started lining up early this morning for the free meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and more.

The Holiday Outreach Dinner was started long ago by some churches, and over the years some organizations have dropped out.

But Harrah's is still participating, and that means a lot to their employees. "We do whatever we can to help benefit the people who live in this community and the fact that they keep doing it just makes me proud to be a Harrah's employee," says Janet Leis.

The dinner wrapped up at 7:00pm.

Harrah's is also partnering with The Salvation Army on Thanksgiving day to offer a free dinner to those in need.

And once again - they expect a record turnout.

"We've noticed that a lot more families are going to be joining us this year rather than just individuals so we'll have as many as 400 or more and that's quite a jump," says Major Janene Zielinski.

That dinner is noon to 2pm on Thanksgiving at The Salvation Army's Corps Community Center at 1931 Sutro Street in Reno.

Meantime, local philanthropist Evelyn Mount is still looking for community help to make her annual meal a reality.

To donate, just bring food to her house at 2530 Cannan Street or the Sak 'N Save store on Oddie and Silverada Boulevards.
