Reno Bighorns NBA D-League Week of Service
On Tuesday, November 22, Bighorns’ players and staff helped decorate a Christmas tree for a local nonprofit fundraiser. Think Kindness’ Lights of Kindness offers businesses the chance to support a local charity during the holidays. Businesses decorate a tree, pick a charity that the tree will benefit, and then shoppers vote on their favorite tree. The trees are located at Outlets at Legends in Sparks, Nev. Each vote is $1, which goes directly to the business’ charity. The Bighorns chose the Kids Kottage as their charity. The Kids Kottage is a protective shelter where police or social workers bring children after they have been removed from their families. Most children at Kids Kottage are there because their families are suspected of severe abuse or neglect. However, some children are placed because no one else is available to care for them during parental incarceration or hospitalization.

The Bighorns concluded the Week of Service on Wednesday, November 23 at the Boys and Girls Club of the Truckee Meadows. The entire Bighorns staff was on hand to help serve Thanksgiving dinner to the boys, girls and their families.
