8 News NOW Partners with After-School All-Stars Las Vegas

In Celebration of Nexstar's Founder's Day

June 2017 -  

In honor of our parent company Nexstar’s 21 anniversary,  8 News NOW will be teaming up with After-School All-Stars Las Vegas (ASAS)  for a Day of Caring on Friday, June 16, 2017.  After-School All-Stars aims to provide at-risk youth the opportunity to participate in sports, educational, cultural and community enrichment programs; to build confidence and self-esteem; to encourage youth to say ‘no’ to gangs, drugs, and violence, and ‘yes’ to hope, learning and life. Our vision is for our All-Stars to be safe and healthy, to graduate high school and go to college, to find careers they love and then give back to their communities. After-School All-Stars (ASAS) provides free comprehensive after-school programs in 15 schools throughout the Las Vegas Valley that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and life. 

 

On Friday, June 16, 8 News NOW is asking you our viewers to stop by our station located at 3228 Channel 8 Drive, to drop off new or gently used sporting good items and  musical equipment between the hours of 6:30 am to 5:30 pm.
