LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - A toddler will have a gift to open this Christmas at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. As part of the 13 Days of Giving toy drive, many kids will receive presents, including 20-month-old Dravyn.
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE 13 DAYS OF GIVING His mother Constance Moore has been homeless most of her life and has battled drug addiction. But her pregnancy changed Moore's course and eventually led her to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. "I had a reason to want to live again," Moore said. Every day, the rescue mission serves hundreds of people like Moore and her son -- full meals, a warm bed and a chance to find a life off the streets. "We're safe," Moore said. "That's the main thing for him. We have some place to sleep." The programs at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission are designed to get people back on their feet.
