LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Venetian Resort will be providing meals to the homeless population in Las Vegas to assist Catholic charities.

The resort, along with Las Vegas Sands, said they have partnered with Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada to provide 1,000 boxed meals to be used by the organization for homeless outreach while its dining facility is closed amid the pandemic.

Also, each box includes an individual Venetian clean hygiene kit that contains body wash and lotion.
