2011 Interfaith Clergy Luncheon held

The Northern Nevada Biannual Interfaith Clergy Luncheon on April 14, 2011 was hosted by Volunteers of America Family Shelter in downtown Reno.

The luncheon this Spring addressed the issue of homelessness in the Truckee Meadows. The Nevada Clergy Association will be working with Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County to encourage religious and business leaders to support the campaign. A meeting was planned with Reno Mayor Bob Cashell, Sandy Isham of Volunteers of America, and Bishop Gene Savoy, Jr. Representing the International Community of Christ at the event were the Rt Reverends Gene Savoy Jr. and Sean Savoy, and the Rev. Dr. Bill Bartlett.

In conjunction with the project to encourage community leaders to address the problem of homelessness in the Reno area, an article on this campaign by Bishop Gene Savoy Jr. appeared in the Reno Gazette-Journal on April 12.
