Bins for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada were filled to overflowing after Touch-A-Truck and Fall Festival on Oct. 19. The Holiday Food Drive continues through Nov. 22.

The Touch-A-Truck and Fall Festival on Oct. 19 kicked off the Somersett Owners Association’s annual Holiday Food Drive for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Thanks to generous donations, the drive got off to a great start, but more help is needed! According to the Food Bank, one in five children in Nevada is hungry. Let’s pitch in and fight that statistic by bringing your donations of non-perishable food items to the front desk through Friday, November 22.
