The 2018 Community Outreach committee is dedicated to giving back to our community. On Tuesday, March 6th, the committee plus other CREW members volunteered their time to Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank providing food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties. Three Square helps to provide food for more than 164,000 individuals each month, and we are proud to say that in our 3 hours of volunteering, our CREW helped prepare 1200 breakfast boxes, 400 high school lunches and 200 snacks for the hungry in our community. Plus, we were able to fully prep additional boxes with non-perishables for future meals donated. It was truly inspirational to be a part of the work that Three Square does on a daily basis, and we cannot wait for our next volunteer opportunity in Quarter 2.
If you’d like to join CREW and Three Square in the fight for a hunger-free community, please contact Samantha Flaherty to be notified of future CREW volunteer opportunities.
