In what has become an annual tradition, IBEW Local 1245 members at NV Energy came together over the holidays to support Evelyn Mount’s holiday food drive. Mount is well known in the Reno community for her tireless efforts to collect and distribute food for needy families.
Local 1245 member and NV Energy Fleet Mechanic John Wilson has been spearheading the effort for several years, and noted that “the generosity this year was phenomenal.” The Local 1245 members raised more than $4,000, and received an additional $3,000 from the company, for a grand total of $7,000. The money was used to purchase a wide variety of groceries, including turkeys, side dishes and desserts, which were all delivered to Mount the week before Christmas, enabling her to provide meals for 360 local families in need.
