Dexter said he will match every $1 given on his donation page to support Three Square’s Coronavirus Emergency Food Fund.

Food is a basic need and Three Square says it is essential as it continues to make healthy meals available within the community - especially among vulnerable populations such as children, seniors, veterans and furloughed workers.

Three Square created a Coronavirus Emergency Food Fund due to the economic impact of COVID-19 within Southern Nevada. The organization said the current coronavirus situation is expected to increase the need for food assistance for the community.
