Nevada Volunteers Celebrates New Reno Location

RENO, Nev. — In celebration of the grand opening of is new Reno location, Nevada Volunteers recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house event. The organization’s new offices are located at 639 Isbell Rd. Ste. 220.

“We look forward to the benefits our new home will bring us, most notably an easier platform to offer statewide volunteer support services,” said Shawn Lecker-Pomaville, CEO of Nevada Volunteers. “We’re excited about the partnerships being built by business, non-profits and government working together to address Nevada’s needs through service and volunteerism.”

Nevada Volunteers, formerly known as the Nevada Commission for National and Community Service, creates opportunities to inspire, teach, train and recognize individuals, organizations, and businesses across Nevada to develop a legacy of service and citizenship. It is the governor’s commission that administers AmeriCorps programs statewide and hosts the annual Governor’s Points of Light award.

Nevada Volunteers is an outstanding source for Nevadans to connect and find volunteering opportunities. Since 1988, the organization has had 1,288 AmeriCorps volunteers serving Nevada and recruiting more than 17,000 volunteers who donated 117,000 hours of service to local communities. Kudos to the organization and to Nevada First Lady Dawn Gibbons, honorary chair, for their continued work to make Nevada a better place to live and work.
