Nevada Mining Association donates $7,000 to Reno’s Eddy House
RENO, Nev. — The Nevada Mining Association officials donated nearly $7,000 to Reno’s Eddy House on Oct. 1.
The nonprofit Eddy House serves homeless and at-risk youth in Northern Nevada.
The NVMA’s “Hope for Heat” campaign donated $6,930 — $90 for every day local temperatures topped 90 degrees in the Reno area.
Tyre Gray, NVMA president, presented the check to Eddy House CEO Diaz Dixon, saying, “few causes are important as helping young people in crisis.”
Gray said the mining association is a proud partner with the Eddy House, which also provides, among other services, comprehensive after-school programs to students whether they can pay or not.
The bill credit will equate to roughly $107 per single-family residential customer, $60 per multi-family unit customer and $53 for typical small business customers.
