2 ways to help the less fortunate at Thanksgiving
Carson City has been dusted with snow, and we are looking ahead to Thanksgiving. Two groups will help the less fortunate enjoy a wonderful holiday dinner.
Salvation Army’s annual “Thanksgiving Turkey Drop” will start soon at Mike’s Pharmacy if you want to buy an extra turkey to give to a family in need.
The annual Thanksgiving Meal sponsorship through Kiwanis International provides a Thanksgiving meal from the south Albertsons store for families in motels, hotels, campgrounds or places where they cannot cook a traditional dinner.
The third annual Harvest of Hope is sponsored by Carson-Tahoe Hospital. Cancer-surviving models will show off the latest fall fashions with proceeds supporting the new C-TH cancer center.
Veterans Day is the annual “Adopt A Senior Veteran” spaghetti dinner at the Elks Lodge to raise money to sponsor meals for senior veterans through the Meals on Wheels program.
The annual, two-day Holiday Craft Fair at Carson High School includes more than 150 crafters and entertainment. I hear someone special will be flying in on his sleigh.

A big thank you to Kathy Loomis, manager of Starbucks, for holding items collected for hygiene kits for Carson and Lyon County students in need. And thank you to all who enjoyed a cup of coffee and helped a child.
