How You Can Help

Through our Request for Assistance Form and a partnership with the Nevada Public Health Training Center, Reno’s COVID Crew, and Nevada HIP has provided food relief in the form of gift cards to local establishments or groceries from local establishments to over 40 hospitality and service families within our community.

The holiday’s can be exceptionally hard for our hospitality and service families and we are excited to announce that we will be putting together and delivering special holiday packages for each of these families (and any new families that request assistance between now and December 14).

We have, once again, partnered with US Foods to make the most of the monetary donations we receive for this initiative. If you’d like to support this initiative with a monetary donation, adopt a family here or send checks, payable to Hospitality Industry Partnerships (HIP), to PO Box 17332, Reno, NV 89511. Every dollar makes a difference!

Each family will be receiving their holiday package the week of December 14, 2020 and we are looking for volunteers to help us put together these packages and deliver them. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up here.

Other ways you can help:

  • Share the initiative via social media, word of mouth, e-mail, etc.
  • If you know anyone who is in need of assistance, please encourage them to complete our Request for Assistance Form.
