Reno Woman Helps the Homeless

A Reno woman will purchase items to help the local homeless population ahead of winter. Denaja Lewis, 21, hopes to collect $1,000 by this Friday. She will make care packages. The packages will include items such as blankets, socks, gloves, masks, and scarves. Lewis wanted to make a difference after noticing several tents covered in snow near her apartment complex last week. If you would like to donate items you can email Lewis at
