Staff Reports

The Carson Valley Country Club and Greater Nevada Credit Union are participating in a national campaign to benefit the Douglas County Backpack Buddies Consortium.

“It’s Chili Outside – Let’s Make Nevada Hunger Free,” is sponsored by the Nevada State Health Division.

Through Friday community members can drop off cans of chili at Carson Valley Country Club, 1029 Riverview Drive, Gardnerville; Greater Nevada Credit Union, 1545 Highway 395 in Minden; or 1295 Birdie Way in Minden.

The donations will go directly to the Backpack Buddies that provides school-aged children with food for the weekend.
