Nevada Medical Spa Announces Thanksgiving Food Drive To Benefit Needy Reno Residents

Dr. Calvin Van Reken announces that the Reno Sparks Medspa will be hosting its first ever Thanksgiving Food Drive. Patients who contribute to the food drive will also qualify for discounts on a variety of cosmetic clinic services at our Reno Medical Spa.

Dr. Calvin Van Reken is excited to announce that the Reno Sparks Medspa will be hosting its first ever Thanksgiving Food Drive. From Monday, October 24, through Thanksgiving Eve, Dr. Van Reken and his staff will be collecting nonperishable food donations.

Additionally, patients who bring in food items will qualify for discounted cosmetic services and skincare treatments, allowing them to help their community, save money, and feel more confident.

Medical Spa patients who bring in one or two cans will receive a 5% discount on any cosmetic service offered during the food drive, while patients who bring in three to four cans will receive a 10% discount during the same period. For patients who bring in five cans or more, Dr. Van Reken is offering the same 10% discount on cosmetic services such as acne treatment, sclerotherapy, hair loss treatment, tattoo removal, as well as a free Medlite laser facial for anyone the patient chooses.

Dr. Van Reken also said that he wants to pay tribute to Reno icon Evelyn Mount, who has been organizing Thanksgiving food drives since the 1970s. Dr. Van Reken and his staff are looking forward to supporting Mount's efforts this year.

And, finally, he hopes to inspire his patients and neighbors to reflect on their own blessings during the upcoming holiday season.

"My hopes for the food drive are that people will stop and realize all the great things they have in their own life. Health. Often youth. Living in a great country. And when we look around the world and see the news, so many are less fortunate. One little person can't affect the national election or save the world, but I think it's like Voltaire wrote at the end of Candide, ‘As for me, I will tend my garden.’ I think we all need to tend our garden. We all need to just be kind, be gracious, and be thankful. If we give to those around us, the world is a better place."

Reno, Nevada residents interested in contributing to the Reno Sparks Medspa food drive can contact the office directly through Wednesday, November 23.
