LAS VEGAS – On Thursday, November 21, House of Blues Executive Chef, Charles Miller, and his team will prepare and serve a Thanksgiving feast for Community Dinner guests as part of National Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week. The dinner will take place at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM) located on 480 W. Bonanza Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89106 from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. The greater Las Vegas community is invited to participate in Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week by dropping off donations including food, winter clothing, hygiene items, and/or making a donation to the Mission.
The House of Blues has been a committed partner of LVRM for over five years, continually promoting the Mission’s efforts to meet the needs of homeless communities in Las Vegas. “Our House of Blues family is dedicated to the Las Vegas community and we’re so thankful to help the Las Vegas Rescue Mission serve a special holiday dinner to people in need,” said House of Blues Las Vegas Executive Chef Charles Miller.
On average, the Mission serves 600-800 trays within the first hour of the holiday dinner service. “As we approach the holiday season, we are so grateful for the opportunity to partner with the House of Blues during Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week to provide a delicious feast and companionship,” said Heather Engle, CEO of Las Vegas Rescue Mission. “As we rely heavily on donations, we want to encourage Las Vegas community members to give back during this national event as we work to support the needs of our local homeless population.”
Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week is part of a national effort, co-sponsored by the National Coalitions for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, to bring communities together and raise awareness to the issues of hunger and homelessness through education, service, fundraising and advocacy. The national event will take place from November 16-24, just before Thanksgiving.

About Las Vegas Rescue Mission
The Las Vegas Rescue Mission has been assisting homeless men, women and children in the community for nearly five decades. Since our beginning in 1970, the Mission has been providing food to the hungry every day, shelter to the homeless, and an addiction recovery and back-to-work program for those who have lost their way. The Mission started with a small storefront building that included the chapel, kitchen and shelter that was able to house a few men. Today, the Mission campus takes up two city blocks in Downtown Las Vegas, helping hundreds of men, women and children daily, and providing approximately 30,000 meals each month. As a nonprofit Christian organization, it provides services to all people without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age, gender, religion or disability.
