RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – Northern Nevada Dream Center is a non-profit organization situated in Carson City. This year marks the 8th Annual Dream Christmas Fundraiser.
Throughout the month of December, a mobile caravan of holiday cheer and sweets will be distributed to people and families in need.
Susan Sorenson, executive director, and Bethany Herzing, director of programs and volunteers, joined by Morning Break to explain how you can help give or hand out contributions to make the holidays a bit brighter for local families.
