Chase International’s Reno office helped collect more than 15,000 cans of tuna to donate to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada for Run on Tuna, a canned food drive that’s part of Hunger Action Month.
Chase Agents and their affiliates are proud to have partnered with the nonprofit, which collected 15,063 cans of tuna in the fifth year of the Run On Tuna event. As of this year, Run on Tuna has collected and donated over 48,000 cans of tuna since 2011.
“We are thrilled to partner with Run on Tuna, an event that makes such a big difference in our community,” said Michelle Sturge with the Reno Chase International Office. “It’s a great way for our staff to get involved in the Reno-Tahoe region and to support Chase’s heart-centered real estate philosophy.”
Donations exceeded this year’s goal by over 50 percent.
“It’s amazing what happens when we all pitch in together,” said De De Rosene, founder of Run on Tuna. “Our goal was to collect over 10,000 cans, so we were more than pleased that we exceeded the goal by so much. We couldn’t do this without the many donations from businesses such as Chase International who with their business affiliates, we count as part of our collective generous supporters in the Reno-area community.”
