Every year the president and board of directors choose to do a fundraiser for a charitable organization. This year they picked The Samaritan House. They raised $3,900 which was put to use remodeling showers.
The Samaritan House/ Emergency Shelter is an absolute hidden treasure in the City of Elko, according to the Elko County Association of Realtors board of directors. This house is for any individual or family in need of shelter. People occupy the shelter every night throughout the year.
The house offers people a place to shower, eat and sleep. The majority of people staying are families and the elderly.
There is a check in and check out time at Samaritan House. The facility is managed by a very hard working team that is a resource for anyone staying to help get what they need to stabilize their situation, the board said.
