RENO - U.S. Bank announced it has made a $2,500 grant to the Sierra Assisted Living Foundation. The grant will support the foundation's general operating expenses while they complete construction of the Ellington Manor affordable housing community. The Ellington Manor complex, located on Kimmerling Road in Gardnerville, will serve low-income senior citizens and disabled adults with affordable housing, programs and support services.
"The grant from U.S. Bank will allow us to function while completing the development of Ellington Manor," said Ellie O'Toole, executive director of the Sierra Assisted Living Foundation.
U.S. Bank contributed more than $44 million to its communities in 1998, of which ultimately $21 million was through cash grants in areas including affordable housing/economic development, K-12 education, artistic and cultural enrichment and United Way.
