Community Highlight – Karma Box Project

Posted by & filed under Blog.

We would like to take a moment to highlight a great community program of which our Reno office has been participating for the last year. This program is the Karma Box Project. It’s a community initiative that allows people to give non-perishable food, hygiene products, toiletries, and other useful items to those in need. Employees at our Reno office started by supplying a Karma Box in Reno with donations and eventually built one that is kept fully stocked on a regular basis. Thank you, Karma Box Project, for creating such a wonderful program for those in need! Go to their website, linked above, if you would like to find a Karma Box near you or build one for yourself.
