Out & About by Kim Riggs: Reno Rodeo reaching out to Carson foster families

Kim Riggs
for the Nevada Appeal

When you hear Reno anything, you think it doesn’t apply to the rural areas, but when you talk about this association you are dead wrong. This year the Reno Rodeo Foundation Denim Drive received so much support they decided to assist Foster Families throughout the rural areas.

Licensed Washoe, Carson and Douglas County foster parents and their foster children are invited to attend the fourth annual Foster Family Denim Distribution event. Each child may select two pairs of jeans, a package of underwear and three packages of socks.

Thank you to everyone in the Reno Rodeo Association and all the contributors throughout the rodeo community and citizens that participated in this larger then life event.
