Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month and we invite you to join us in this nationwide effort to bring awareness to the fact that 48 million people in America, including 15 million children, don't know where their next meal will come from.
Thursday, September 8th is Hunger Action Day all across the nation. We invite you to wear orange and raise awareness for our hungry neighbors and what they face.
We ask this September that you consider how it must feel to live with an empty stomach. What could you not accomplish in your day to day with out the food you need? The feeling of running on empty is a reality for one in seven of our northern Nevada neighbors.
At CAHS we strive to make sure that the people in our community NEVER GO HUNGRY! We work with/provide over 5 different food programs. Sometimes we struggle to keep our food pantry filled with the essential items our families need. So we are asking for your help.
For the month of September
we would appreciate any donations of unopened peanut butter
and/or macaroni & cheese.
You can drop off donations to the CAHS office
located @924 5th St
or you can contact us @945-2471
Thank You!

God Bless America

We would like to thank everyone that donated to the CAHS Back to School Supply Drive this year!! We were able to provide over 85 students with school supplies for the 2016-2017 school year. A special thank you the Mineral County Sheriff's Department for partnering with us for our first "Cram the Cruiser With Back to School Supplies" event. It was so successful that we have decided to make it an annual event. Thank you to BLM, USGS, and The Mad Hatters for their generous donations once again. Thank you to the Hawthorne Moms for organizing The 2nd Annual Socks and Underwear Drive, and donating those items to us. Last but definitely not least, thank you to all the citizens of Mineral County that donated school supplies. We couldn’t do it without all of you! You are all greatly appreciated!

WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program

We are very excited to announce that WIC is now officially offering The Farmer's Market Nutrition Program! Along with the regular WIC benefits, participants 1 year and older, are receiving Farmers Market coupons. WIC knows that sometimes it's a struggle to get enough fruits and vegetables into our families daily diet. This new program makes it a little bit easier. If you have any questions or would like to participate in WIC please call Dianna @945-2471. Have a great day!
