Join us at the 5th Annual Mt. Shasta Reindeer Run on Friday, November 23rd at 11 am.
The 5k Fun Walk/Run supports GNS’ Summer Lunch program, providing free meals to kids while school food programs are not available. Kids under 12 can participate in the walk/run for free and the event is dog-friendly. Santa and his sleigh will be on hand and prizes will be given for best ugly Christmas sweaters or holiday costumes. Kick off the Mt. Shasta Winter Magic Festival with this fun and festive event full of good community spirit.
Many thanks to event organizer Brenda Hall and Studio B. We are grateful for your continued support.
Tyler is officially the GNS Food Driver and Office Assistant but many people know him as the guy who runs the Summer Lunch Program Kitchen and brings the kids their meals. (Or maybe just as the dude with the Kendama around his neck.) Tyler makes sure the prep kitchen runs smoothly, the volunteers know what they’re doing, and the food gets to all the different feeding sites. “Being able to feed kids who need it is very rewarding,” says Tyler “If there was a program like that when I was a kid I would have gone every day.”

Success Story: Help is There
Not too long ago Richard V. from Mt. Shasta received help paying his Pacific Power bill through the GNS Energy Assistance department. He called us to tell us what a blessing it was. “I’ve been houseless, I was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness and I got into housing but I haven’t been able to work. I wasn’t even keeping my fridge turned on,” reported Richard, “The assistance made my life so much easier. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. I came down and the staff helped me fill the application out. They made it understandable and answered my questions. I really needed the help. This will get me through the winter.”
