Elko Committee Against Domestic Violence would like to thank the Elko Convention and Visitors Authority Board for selecting our organization as a charity partner for this year’s Festival of Trees!

The Elko Convention and Visitors Authority hosts the annual Festival of Trees as a fundraiser for community charities. The money raised by the sale of Christmas trees, holiday wreaths, stockings and more is split among the charities chosen by the Elko Convention and Visitors Authority Board of Directors.

The event will be held November 27-29 at the Elko Conference Center. Full details can be found on their site.

New Wishlist

Harbor House does not have food on its wish list right now, because of the generous donations from Keller Williams, the Lamoille Women’s Club, members of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other private donors.

The Elko County Library is running a food drive for CADV through the end of the year, and this should keep our pantry well stocked. 

We do still have a need for the following items: 

TOILETRIES

  • Full size shampoo/conditioner
  • Full size body wash
  • Deodorant

CLEANING SUPPLIES

  • Vacuum with hose preferred
  • Towels
  • Washcloths
  • Dishwasher detergent
  • Dryer Sheets (hypo-allergenic preferred)
  • Laundry detergent (hypo-allergenic preferred)
  • All-purpose cleaners

VARIOUS SHELTER SUPPLIES

  • New sheets, mostly twins and queen sizes
  • Bookshelves
  • Totes
