Students from Sierra Nevada College recently distributed more than 150 items of clothing to underprivileged families in the second annual Winter Warmth Drive.

For six weeks, donations were collected at five locations throughout Incline Village, including Raley’s, IV Coffee Lab, SNC and Tunnel Creek Cafe.

Residents of the community donated clean and gently used items, ranging from technical outerwear, warm puffys, beanies, blankets and winter wear for children.

All donations were given to families at the Project MANA food distribution on Wednesday, Dec. 17.

“This year was extremely successful as we gave away over 90 percent of all donations to families in need, all within about 30 minutes,” said recent SNC graduate Kelly Benson, who has managed the drive both years.

The students at SNC would like to thank the community partners who helped make the drive a reality, as well as those who volunteered time and supplies, and especially those who donated items.

“With the holiday season upon us, it is important to think about others and give back to our community and Incline has done a great job of that,” Benson said.
