Businesses and individuals have been busy for weeks collecting food donations to help people in need.
And they have just one week left-- until we celebrate their efforts at our 21st Annual Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive.
Grand Sierra Resort employees say they are ready.
"I think it's just about doing something together to provide for people that are less privileged in the community, and make life better for everyone," says Steve Wolstenholme.
For 21 years now we at Channel 2 have worked with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and other charities in our region to collect food for the less fortunate.
Last year, thanks to your generosity, we collected more than 191,000 pounds of food - and nearly $174,000.
Members of the community stopped by our main drop-off locations here at the GSR in Reno, at the governor's mansion in Carson City and at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden.
It's always a special day - when we get to say hello to all of you and be amazed at the generosity in our community.
"This is one of the greatest cities in the United States, in the greatest country, so let's get together as a community and support these types of drives."
This year's Share Your Christmas is next Friday from 6 am to 6 pm.
