RENO — Residents have two ways to help the Veterans Guest House in the coming weeks.
First, the Veterans Guest House has been selected as a finalist for Aprons in Action, The Home Depot Foundation’s unique Facebook voting program, and has the opportunity to win a $25,000 gift card from The Home Depot. Voting runs through Thursday at www.facebook.com/homedepotfoundation. The organization with the most votes will win the $25,000 prize and be in the running for the grand prize of $250,000 starting March 1. The runner-up organizations will receive $5,000 in The Home Depot gift cards.
Working together, Veterans Guest House and Team Depot associates have already provided and installed doors, kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, toilets and a number of appliances for the Veterans Guest House newly remodeled expansion facility.
Voting runs ends at 9 p.m. Thursday.
On March 3, the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa is teaming up with News Talk 780 KOH to raise awareness and funds for the Veterans Guest House during the ninth annual radiothon from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The community is invited to make a donation in-person or by calling into the radiothon at 335-4621. Donations can be made inside the Atlantis in the atrium or outside at the rotunda in the west parking lot. Military vehicles will be on display outside the rotunda.

The Veterans Guest House provides temporary housing for veterans and their families while undergoing medical treatment. During the month of January, the Guest House had 400 room nights, the busiest January in the facility’s history. The Guest House does not receive any government funding for its day-to-day operations and relies solely on donations.
