National Non-Profit Day shines light on local organizations helping those in need

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Groups around the nation and right here in the Las Vegas valley will celebrate National Non-Profit Day on Monday, August 17. It’s a chance to highlight organizations helping those in need in the community.

“Help of Southern Nevada [has] been in the community for over fifty years and there are other nonprofits that have been working very long and hard to maintain their services,” said Abby Quinn with Help of Southern Nevada. “We are filling the gaps, we are seeing what is needed in the community.”

The local nonprofit helps everyone from the unborn baby to the senior citizen, and helps them become self-sufficient. They’ve done this through a variety of ways like direct services, training and referral to community resources.

Now, because of the coronavirus pandemic, they’re helping people keep a roof over their heads.
