LAS VEGAS — Hope For The City is a local nonprofit organization committed to providing care, relief and critical food needs to the Las Vegas area and beyond. This holiday season Las Vegas businesses and the community donated to help over 7,300 families in need. The “Hope for the Holidays” initiative included two immersive drive-thru food pantry events and three benefit broadcasts on Channel 13, CW Las Vegas and out Your View.
At the food pantry events, families in need received food items, holiday sweets, games, toys and a holiday light show.
