LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Tuesay, the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation donated $5,000 and cases of water to HELP of Southern Nevada to support the non-profit’s ninth annual HELP2O Water Drive.
The donation for HELP2O comes less than one month after the VGK Foundation and Credit One Bank donated $12,000 to HELP following their 2019-2020 season in-game concourse auction.
Senior staff of HELP attended the donation drop-off at HELP of Southern Nevada’s Framing Hope Warehouse to gratefully accept the donation presented by Kim Frank, President of Vegas Golden Knights Foundation, Mia Festenese, Community Relations Coordinator of Vegas Golden Knights Foundation and Chance, Vegas Golden Knights Mascot.
“Today marked the 55th consecutive day with a high of at least 100 degrees in Las Vegas and the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation and our team’s players wanted to make sure those in need in our community had water to drink,” said Kim Frank, President of Vegas Golden Knights. “We admire the work that HELP of Southern Nevada does in our community and supporting their HELP20 Water Drive was an easy decision.”
The HELP2O Water Drive will continue through Monday, Aug. 31. Those interested in assisting HELP of Southern Nevada to provide clean water to aid the local homeless community can donate bottled water to the HELP of Southern Nevada Framing Hope Warehouse (1600 E Flamingo Rd.) Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monetary donations are also accepted and greatly appreciated via the “2020 HELP2O Water Drive” option here: bit.ly/34w31kn.
“The Vegas Golden Knights Foundation has been a consistent supporter of HELP of Southern Nevada since their inaugural season. We are thankful to their organization and our shared commitment to improving our local community.
HELP looks forward to putting this donation to good use in our on-going mission to serve homeless individuals and families in Las Vegas,” said Abby Quinn, HELP of Southern Nevada’s Chief Community Relations Officer.
