LAS VEGAS – Two Nevada State Bank branches will host food drives to benefit Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM), a faith-based organization which serves individuals and families in need through food, shelter, daily needs and addiction recovery. The LVRM serves a community meal open to anyone daily as well as provide food boxes and essential supplies to those in need just arriving to our community.
Non-perishable food items can be donated by driving through drop-off locations open from 9 a.m. to noon at two Nevada State Bank branch locations:
· Thursday, November 5: Ft. Apache/Flamingo Branch – 9415 W. Flamingo Rd.
· Friday, November 6: McCarran Center Branch – 750 E Warm Springs Rd
Those attending and donating at the drive-through food drive should expect to stay in their cars to encourage safe social distance guidelines. Volunteers will remove bagged and/or boxed food donations from cars and place them into bins.
The Las Vegas Rescue Mission has seen tremendous increases in the need for emergency food services since mid-March 2020. In a normal year, they serve nearly 400,000 meal to the hungry in our community. Even with COVID-19 parameters limiting their inside service, they are continuing to serve a package daily meal to those in need and plan a three-hour distribution on Thanksgiving.
“Giving back to the community is one of our core values at Nevada State Bank,” said Craig Kirkland, EVP/Regional Director of Retail Banking for NSB and board member for Las Vegas Rescue Mission. “We’re asking the community to help replenish the Las Vegas Rescue Mission shelves, so they can help our neighbors struggling with hunger.”
Suggested donations include canned goods (vegetables, fruits) proteins (tuna, chicken, beans, etc.) holiday items (gravy mix, stuffing mix, macaroni & cheese) and other non-perishable, non-expired food items.
