Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada (CCSN) will celebrate 81 years of serving the Las Vegas Valley as it continues to grow and impact the community through a number of various social services since opening its doors on April 16, 1941. In honor of the milestone, Catholic Charities will host a special community meal in its newly renovated dining facility gathering clients and volunteers to commemorate the occasion.
At 10 a.m. on April 29, CCSN staff members will host its ‘Feed Vegas’ community meal, treating clients from the surrounding area to a massive and specially prepared meal.
One basic necessity we all need is food. During the month of April we celebrate our agency’s food services and our contribution to the vulnerable population of people living in our Las Vegas Valley. Catholic Charities does this by providing a no cost daily community meal, home delivered meals to homebound seniors and community food pantry. Volunteers are invited to give the gift of service at our Hands of Hope Community Food Pantry and St. Vincent Lied Dining Facility during National Volunteer Month.
The organization has developed alongside Southern Nevada’s population growth and annually assists tens of thousands of vulnerable members in the community. Sustainability of its campus is top of mind as the organization is in process of campus renovations, including installation of solar energy project, keyless entry systems, renovated dining hall, while currently renovations of the Emergency Men’s Night Shelter and future renovation of the Fertitta Community Assistance Center for our Migration & Refugee Services.
In celebration, Catholic Charities looks forward to seeing the return of its annual Heart of Hope fundraiser on May 13 where supporters in the community are invited to contribute funds to enable the organization to continue its mission. Since its beginning Catholic Charities has relied on the generosity of the community and accepts donations large and small for the benefit of its clients. To contribute to Feed Vegas make a gift today!
