Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RENO, Nev. - Dec 04, 2017 - Mix Bakeshop has decided to donate a minimum of 10 pies a month to the 108-bed Family Shelter. The shelter is one of three of the Volunteers of America/ReStart-operated shelters at the City of Reno’s Community Assistance Center in downtown Reno through 2018.
Mix Bakeshop bakers are busy in the kitchen, making some delicious traditional and creative takes on old classics and pledging to donate those sweet treats to the Reno family shelter every month through 2018. Local owners Kris Daters and Mary Allstead are also challenging the community to donate additional pies and sweets to those who need a little encouragement during tougher times. Customers can “pie it forward” by purchasing one of the Mix Bakeshop pies to the family shelter and the company will deliver them directly to the shelter once a month.
“Pies, cookies and cupcakes are a luxury to most, and especially to those that live off a very small budget or are in transition between homes,” said Kris Daters, owner. “We can’t always offer a lot of time and money but we can bring a little comfort and a few smiles to those working hard to better their lives.”

The Family Shelter is comprised of 21 units for adult(s) and children, with one room accommodating families of as many as 10 people; one room designed for as many as eight people; one room for as many as six people; and 18 rooms designed to accommodate as many as four people. In addition, there are six rooms for pregnant women in their third trimester, or for single moms with babies (age 2 and younger).
Volunteers of America/ReStart provides enhanced services designed to provide homeless individuals and families the resources and services that will get them back on their feet.
“For the children, this gives them some normalcy,” said Volunteers of America CEO and president Leo McFarland of the new Family Shelter. “It becomes home so they lose some of the stigma (of being homeless).”
