The Nevada Mining Association kicked off its sixth annual Hope for Heat campaign on Memorial Day, May 31.
The campaign runs until Labor Day, September 6; every day temperatures reach 90 degrees in Reno and Elko, respectively, $90 will be donated to the nonprofit Eddy House in Reno and the Boys & Girls Club of Elko, according to an NVMA press release.
Eddy House provides homeless and at-risk youth with access to essential basic resources in a safe and secure location, as well as training to develop the skills needed for lasting independence. The Boys and Girls Club of Elko offers programs to keep young people on track to graduate, empowering them to plan for a future as healthy, productive and responsible residents.
