Signature Landscapes helping the community for the holidays
Christmas Décor by Signature Landscapes will be bringing a little extra holiday spirit into the homes of military families with its annual Decorated Family Program. With the large number of Truckee Meadows soldiers deployed overseas this holiday season, local families are facing the challenge of preparing for the holidays without their loved ones. Christmas Decor has stepped in to light up the homes of the families of these brave men and women. Each holiday, Christmas Decor by Signature Landscapes solicits community nominations to pick one or two families and donates products, resources and time to decorate their homes as part of the Decorated Family Program.
Evelyn Mount Receives a Brighter Holiday Home
For more than a decade, our community has been the recipient of good will, tireless dedication, and more than 20 tons of food for thousands of families. Provided free of charge from local philanthropist, Evelyn Mount, it all comes out of her modest one-story home in North Reno. And for the past six years, Christmas Décor by Signature Landscapes has tried to brighten the holidays for Ms. Mount by lighting up her home with thousands of colorful lights and decorations during the chilly months of the holiday season.
This year is no exception, and the reason is simple says Signature employee, Steven Fine, “The holidays can be a stressful time for folks navigating the rush of the holidays, and this year it seems harder than ever. It important to us Ms. Mount knows early on how proud we are to help brighten her home. In fact, she’s the first house we do every year. The crews love it, the neighbors love it, everyone gets excited!”
The Mount home is just one of many remarkable non-profits the company lights up for the holidays.
“These lights are the very least we could do to help deliver just a sliver of traditional and positive holiday spirit,” says Fine. “Our crews are out and about in the neighborhoods putting up lights for hundreds of homes. So it just makes sense to put a few more locations on the daily route. We are a Christmas company after all!”
Along with the Evelyn Mount home, Christmas Décor also lights up the Ronald McDonald House, participates in the national Christmas Décor Decorated Family program, and provides holiday cheer for up to six non-publicized homes each year.
If you can help, donate items at her house located at 2530 Cannan Street or the Sak ‘N Save on Oddie and Silverada Boulevards in Reno.
