LAS VEGAS – Desert Radiology donated more than 200 toys to the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation on Tuesday for the nonprofit’s annual Fill the Fire Truck Toy Drive.
Firefighters arrived at Desert Radiology’s Palomino location in a Las Vegas Fire and Rescue ambulance to pick up the toys that were collected over several weeks by Desert Radiology’s Do-Gooders, a team that has been a driving force with many nonprofit organizations throughout the valley.
Friend and Las Vegas Lights FC mascot, Cash joined the DO-Gooders team to load the truck with the donations. The toys collected for the Fill the Fire Truck Toy Drive will go to children across the valley who benefit from more than 40 Southern Nevada nonprofits, schools and organizations.
The Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation is comprised of active fire department personnel who provide support to victims of fires and catastrophic events through various programs such as the Burn Survivor Initiative, which helps raise funds for pediatric burn victims to attend burn camps, counseling and reintegration programs.
The Do-Gooders team, which includes team members from all Desert Radiology facilities, provides support for many charities across the valley including the City Impact Center, Project 150 and Opportunity Village.
Desert Radiology is Southern Nevada’s largest resource for diagnostic care. The practice operates 11 outpatient imaging centers and works closely with 12 area hospitals to deliver leading-edge services that include diagnostic and interventional radiology.
