Reno, Nev. – Each year, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNN) collects donations to fill Easter baskets for local children who are living in poverty. CCNN is hoping to collect a minimum of 800 Easter baskets this year by Monday, March 23. A party with cupcakes, drinks, and of course, the Easter bunny, will be held for local children on Saturday, April 4 at St. Vincent’s Dining Room, located at 325 Valley Road.
