On Monday afternoon, House of Blues headliner Carlos Santana and the team from House of Blues visited the Las Vegas Rescue Mission to serve the residents a soulful meal straight from the culinary team at House of Blues.

Santana and team also held a water drive and provided 8,400 bottles of water for the homeless community that Las Vegas Rescue Mission provides for each day.

Additionally, the group donated more than 500 refillable pouches that the homeless can use to refill with water throughout the Vegas summer.

Director of Program Services, John Fogal, took Santana on a tour through the Mission’s on site dorms where they house around 120-150 residents that are working hard to get back to normal lives by getting help with addiction, education and job placement.
