The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows received a nice donation from three local homebuilders on Thursday.
Desert Wind, Lennar and Ryder Homes presented a check for more than $10,000 to the organization this afternoon.
The builders teamed up from November 10th to December 10th to raise the money.
"We thought about this and said it would be a lot of fun. Nice way to sort of give back to the community. This has been a good year for all 3 builders," says John Schroeder of Ryder Homes.
Meanwhile the Boys and Girls Club is working with the Solace Tree to host an event today.
'Healing for the Holidays' focuses on helping children and families deal with grief as a result of a lost loved one. It includes free workshops and dinner for participants.
It's happening at the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows - Donald W. Reynolds Facility at 2680 East Ninth Street, Reno until 8pm.
