Ad2 Reno adopts a local non-profit each year providing marketing and advertising services. We had almost 60 organizations apply for our services this year. Sixty! This workshop is a thank you to all of the nonprofits – a way to help the organizations we couldn’t otherwise reach. Also, by partnering with the Reynolds School and UNR’s Ad Club, we’re able to reach future Ad2 members and possibly connect students with organizations that might need their help.
