LAS VEGAS - Thanksgiving is just days away, and local non-profits are teaming up to help the less fortunate, but they can’t do that without your help.
The Las Vegas Rescue Mission is reaching out to the community for support this holiday season.
The non-profit helps hundreds of people every day with food, shelter, and clothing. This holiday season, volunteers expect to be exceptionally busy.
“We're really excited about gearing up for probably 1,000 guests who will come here and join us for a Thanksgiving meal,” Harry Hinderliter, CEO, Las Vegas Rescue Mission said.
Hinderliter stated there are thousands of homeless people in the valley. As the weather gets colder, more people will come to them seeking shelter.
He added the holiday season is a busy time of the year, and the organization does everything they can to help relieve stress for anyone struggling to make ends meet.
One way is to provide a full Thanksgiving celebration.
“We want to invite everybody that has a need to come by and we'd love to serve them a great turkey meal. Chef Sammy is going to prepare a Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie with whipped cream,” Hinderliter said.
The fest will take place on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. There will also be live music to add to the festivities.
Hinderliter said the Las Vegas Rescue Mission runs on volunteer power and they could always use more. They are also in need of food donations and clothing, especially during this holiday season.
