Annual TelferWorld Charity Giving

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Telfer's World!  

In 2017 we donated $880 to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. This charity was selected by the Miller Family Patriarch, Charles Telfer Miller - the first Telfer for whom the campaign is named.  The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides emergency food services to families through a network of more than 140 partner agencies in a 90,000 square mile service area throughout northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the sierra in California.
