New Side of Reno

Mention “Reno” to most people and they think of slot machines and poker tables. As we found out yesterday, Reno offers a whole other side to life. Thanks to Brian Williams, a motivational speaker for Soles4Souls, Reno is getting known as “The Kindness City”. The mayor even declared March National Kindness Month. To set the tone for other cities, Brian challenged Damonte Ranch High School and Reno High School to collect gently-used shoes for Soles4Souls, as well as share acts of kindness with the entire community. We attended a press conference announcing the ambitious plan to get 300 city blocks in Reno involved in collected shoes. With the enthusiasm shown by these two schools, I know they will achieve their goal!
