The Pirates of Reno
Drubbing for Donations!


What a great way to do fundraising on a hot day!



We've already invited the Pirates back for next year to raise money for the We Care Volunteers!



The following is from their website at   www.wecarevolunteers.org


"We Care Volunteers provide a home-cooked meal, four nights a week to the homeless and working poor of Reno/Sparks community.
We serve in the parking lot of the Tom Vetica Community Assistance Center at a set time in the evening.  Many of the resources for the homeless and poor are located within walking distance of this parking lot which means we are able to reach the elderly and disabled living on the 4 street corridor, and those traveling by bus. (the bus station is only 1 block away).  

"We Care Volunteers provides the main dish and at least two other side dishes plus the beverage(s) to serve anywhere from 150-400 meals per night.  We encourage church, community and school groups along with the general public to join in to serve, and to provide a side-dish or dessert, etc. to round out the meal-- if they so choose.  We Care Volunteers-- are all inclusive-- partnering with many of the agencies throughout the greater Washoe County to assist those in need, but we have no ties to any specific church, political, or community organization.  

"We have worked alongside the Red-Cross, Catholic Charities, Veterans, Blue Star Moms, Girl scouts, and various other groups to help stop hunger among the men, women, and families who live on the streets or the daily motels of Reno/Sparks Nevada.  Our volunteers are a cross section of the Washoe County populace and any given night you will meet Retirees, College students, Teachers, and even participants from the local “Pirates of Reno” re-enactment group!  

"We host two events a year where we provide weather appropriate clothes and gear that we have gathered from the community.  We provide free haircuts and toiletries to assist with preparing with the Summer/Winter.  These events have attracted over 500 participants where we have partnered with other community organizations and non-profits to provide a BBQ lunch, clothing, toiletries, and haircuts.

"We Care Volunteers was founded in 2010 and incorporated in 2011 as a Nevada Non-profit, Federal Provisional charity."
