Giving is more important than ever this year.

It’s not an easy holiday season in Las Vegas. As a tourist-based city, we’ve been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, a decline in travel, and a temporary shutdown that left the Strip looking like a ghost town this past spring. Charity efforts are especially important this year, and while social distancing continues to be an important factor in curbing the spread of the virus, there are many ways to help the local community. Share a little of your time or resources as Las Vegas works its way back to being not only a hot destination for visitors, but a home we can all share. Here’s how to help:
Help conquer homelessness
Homelessness is a problem that affects families and children throughout Las Vegas. HELP of Southern Nevada is seeing its resources stretched to the limit. So take part in a different kind of holiday shopping this season and cover a few items on the Amazon Wish List for the organization’s Shannon West Homeless Youth Center. Items range from pencils and paper plates to clothes and bedsheets. HELP of Southern Nevada’s most high-profile annual fundraiser is the 98.5 KLUC Toy Drive, in which the awesome Chet Buchanan camps out on top of a 30-foot scaffold for 11 days, encouraging donations to help families celebrate the holidays.
