Assistance League® of Reno-Sparks is helping Dixie fire victims. At first, we donated gently used clothing, linens, sleeping bags, toys, and other items that the affected families could use.
Currently, we are working with the Susanville Salvation Army and ask that all monetary donations go through them. Their address is PO Box 1701, Susanville, CA 96130.
We are accepting ONLY toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.) and non-perishable snacks for the victims.
All other donations will be sold in the Thrift Shop to continue funding our community programs.
“The Dixie fire is an epic tragedy for so many households. We are delighted that we have a generous community that wants to spring into action to support the victims,” stated Barbara Holt, Assistance League president-elect. “Assistance League is grateful to be able to help them at this tragic time.”
Many people that live in the fire-affected area come to Reno to donate to and shop in the Assistance League Thrift Shop, located at 1701 Vassar Street, Reno.
