Santa’s Workshop- A Major Event

This weekend, Hug’s JROTC program is planning to create Santa’s Workshop for our community’s youth. It’s part of their junior service learning project for this year. A junior service learning project is a project in which students perform services for their community, while at the same time learning through research and interaction with members of the community. They will get to meet and play with young children at the workshop in hopes of brightening up their holiday season.

The workshop is the culmination of their fundraising efforts throughout the semester. The money they raised through their haunted house and the toys received in their drive will finally be used this Saturday. Children will be able to play games, watch movies, eat holiday desserts, make arts & crafts, and even take a picture with Santa. Santa’s Workshop will be a community fundraising event so any and all children can come to the festivities. Admission to the haunted house will be just two dollars per child or a donation for the Children’s Cabinet. The proceeds that they gather will go towards supporting the Children’s Cabinet of Reno, a non-profit organization that provides several resources to members of the community in need. These services include food and shelter, child care resources, crisis intervention and case management, academic support, tutoring, transitional living, mentoring, parenting classes, child care subsidies, child care resource and referral assistance, and free family counseling.

If you want to support Hug’s JROTC program and the Children’s Cabinet then bring a young family member to the event and enjoy the activities available. The workshop will be open on Saturday the 14th of December from noon to 3 pm and admission will be paid at the entrance.
