Veterans Guest House Residents


Veterans Guest House put out a story on the local news that they were in need of some food items for their kitchen. Including Canned Chili, Canned Fruits, Spam, Chips and Vienna Sausages. A couple of our board members headed to Wal-Mart and Costco and made it happen! * Costco bags not pictured*

Veterans Guest House


This Poker Tourney was somewhat of a last minute gig and we ended up raising $7,000 for the Veterans Guest House!

Local Homeless Veteran


We were made aware that a homeless Veteran was staying in a U-Haul in Fernley until their benefits kicked in 2 weeks later. Unfortunately U-Haul found out and wasn't allowing that anymore, thus making them homeless. We paid for a 2 week extended stay and provided $250 worth of grocery and food gift cards for him and his wife.

Local Fernley Veteran


We received news that a Veteran needed some help with their rent before their benefits kicked in the following month. We contacted their rental company and paid their next months rent!

Local Fernley Veteran

New Refrigerator

News got to us that a local Fernley Veteran was in desperate need of a fridge. We called up Lowes to see what they had - they gave us a brand new one for $700!

Army Infantry Veteran

New Roof

Kelly (our President) met this Veteran in Denio and heard his story. Unfortunately he is dealing with some PTSD due to his time serving our Country. His wife had mentioned that they were in need of a roof on their single wide after the harsh winter. We got to it - called up Troy Whitehead LLC ( a local Fernley company ) and they were on top of it - traveled all the way up there and got it installed in no time.

The Golf Club at Fernley and PTM Management were an amazing host to us for our 1st Annual Poker Run!
