HomeAid Southern Nevada will be supplying coats, blankets and backpacks filled with necessities to people experiencing homelessness in Las Vegas.
HomeAid is partnering with the nonprofit Can You Spare A Story and the CARE Complex for the Winter Priceless Pop-Up Shop event on Saturday, Dec. 22. Those in need can stop by the CARE Complex at 200 Foremaster Lane between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. to pick up coats and other necessities like toiletries.
HomeAid collected coats and blankets for the event during a winter clothing drive and will be handing out backpacks.
“This is an opportunity to collaborate with our partners to give back to those in need during the holidays,” said Nat Hodgson, HomeAid Southern Nevada executive director. “It’s important people experiencing homelessness have these types of resources available. It was great to see the community donate coats and blankets to help people in need stay warm.”
Can You Spare A Story hosted a similar pop-up shop event with HomeAid in July. The nonprofit served more than 1,000 individuals struggling with homelessness during its first year of operation. For more information on the nonprofit, visit www.canyouspareastory.com.
The HomeAid Southern Nevada chapter is sponsored by the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association. This partnership has resulted in more than $2 million in community donations through shelter build projects, which are made possible by the generosity of builders and suppliers.
