Acts of Kindness: Teens Helping Teens

LAS VEGAS - Teens Helping Teens had a challenging task to fulfill, moving a 16'x8'x12' clubhouse into a facility for children.

16-year-old Siena Prenger, and her older sister, Savannah founded the non-profit Teens Helping Teens in 2012. They wanted to create a peer to peer support group to help homeless and disadvantaged teens. They've had plenty of challenges over the years, but this one proved to be quite unique. 

When Siena was notified that the Putze family wanted to donate a custom playhouse for kids, Siena's creativity went into overdrive. "First it was figuring out where to take it to, and then how to get it there." She chose St. Judes Ranch for Children, which provides a safe nurturing home to abused and neglected kids.  She needed help transporting it there. Dielco Crane Company pitched in to help, and reminiscent of the movie, "Up" the Dielco Crane Company helped lift the clubhouse out of a backyard in Henderson and transport it all the way to St. Judes in Boulder City.

Pink Kitty Designs and The Bowler Family as well as a number of volunteers at Bishop Gorman helped make the event a success.

This Saturday, May 20th, Teens Helping Teens is having a community event. 

It's at the Great Harvest Bread Company at 6475 N. Decatur Blvd. From 11 in the morning until 3pm. The event is being held to raise funds, collect critical summer supplies and provide education to those who want to help our local youth.
