AGC Donates to Evelyn Mount's Reno Home

Posted: Updated:

Local philanthropist Evelyn Mount got a large donation just in time for Christmas.

For the 14th year, the Nevada Chapter of the Associated General Contractors delivered a construction loader full of food to Mount's home on Cannan Street.

Mount says she wasn't expecting the donation to be so big, and it will go a long way toward helping those struggling to make ends meet this holiday.

"Yesterday I was almost in tears because I didn't think I would have anything today and we have 10,000 people to give food to, and this is giving me a feeling that we are going to make it!"

Mount still needs help to get through Christmas-

If you want to pitch in you can donate turkeys, chickens, ham, canned food or toys to her home at 2530 Cannan Street in Reno.

And if you want to sign up for help you can call the Community Outreach Center at 359-0807.

Keep in mind, you have to have a valid ID and proof of residence.
