Current Initiatives is hosting its inaugural Affordable Christmas Las Vegas event Saturday, supporting approximately 40 local families and 150 children in the community.

Founded in 2011, Affordable Christmas is a holiday shopping event providing lower-income, working-class families the opportunity to purchase new gifts at one-tenth of the original cost.

This is the first year Affordable Christmas is being hosted in Las Vegas. Additional locations include several cities within the Tampa Bay area.

Families are referred to the annual program by members of various organizations throughout the year. Toys include new and unused bicycles, sports toys and equipment, skateboards, scooters, video games, movies, dolls, action figures, arts and crafts and more.
