The Carson Valley Community Food Closet is a small but mighty non-profit in the heart of Douglas County. But even as this organization continues to feel growing pains, the need to feed residents continues to rise. The food closet is a 2,000 square foot facility that not only houses a portion of their donated goods, but also a single office for three employees, and an undersized lobby for hundreds of hungry residents.
The Carson City agencies who benefit from the Channel 2 News “Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive,” give back to the community in more ways than some might think. With the community's help, the food drive gives three different Carson City agencies enough food to feed the hungry for months beyond the holidays. But it's some of the other services that FISH, the Ron Wood Family Resource Center and Advocates to End Domestic Violence offer that often go unnoticed.
The KTVN Channel 2 News Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive is this Friday. One of the many agencies who benefits from the event is the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. It may seem like a large undertaking, but to the food bank, solving hunger is their day to day mission. "Last year we distributed the equivalent of 14 million meals to families facing hunger throughout northern Nevada,” said Al Brislain, President and CEO of the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
