Spreading Christmas Cheer in Las Vegas
During the holidays most families gather in their homes to celebrate Christmas. However, it dawned on our Las Vegas outreach team that the ladies residing at Hoving Home would be celebrating Christmas away from their families.
That is why in the middle of delivering toys to impoverished children across the Las Vegas Valley, we decided to spread the blessings of the season to the ladies at Hoving Home. We were determined to help create the most enjoyable Christmas celebration under the circumstances.
Something Was Amiss
Upon entering the Hoving Home, we couldn’t help but notice the large living area with high ceilings was missing a Christmas tree and presents.
“Growing up, the one memory that never fades for me is the time family gathered around to decorate a Christmas tree. Our outreach team wanted to provide that same experience for the ladies residing at Hoving Home and the support staff since they were spending Christmas away from their homes and families,” shared Guy Williams, community outreach coordinator at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys. “We were honored to have the opportunity to gift Hoving Home with a beautiful Christmas tree to help make their celebration that much closer to what we enjoyed as children.”
Gifts to Make the Season Brighter
After learning that many of the ladies at Hoving Home have children offsite who may not receive a Christmas present, we wanted to help the mothers give their children the same type of joyful memories we created for their enjoyment.
The one gift we felt comfortable giving, that would be universally appreciated by all children, was a shiny new bicycle. So we purchased some bikes. Then we loaded them up into Santa’s U-Haul. Finally, we made one last special Christmas delivery to the mother’s at Hoving Home.
Witnessing the mother’s faces glow with happiness was among the best gifts our team could have received. Each woman couldn’t have be more pleased to know they had a bicycle to give their kid(s).
“We understand the courage and sacrifice that each of these ladies are making to piece their lives back together. This is why we wanted to take away some of the sting of being away from their homes and families during Christmas,” stated attorney Glen Lerner.

Las Vegas 2,000 Presents Giveaway
Yesterday’s Las Vegas 2,000 Presents Giveaway community event was one of the best ever for our Glen Lerner Gives Back outreach team. Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) closed off the alley in between Pennwood and Silver Dollar, near Arville where 2,000 presents were given away in 1 hour and 57 minutes; and not one child left empty handed.
Santa arrived and passed out candy canes and took pictures with all the children, and a few parents. It was a good time for all and a special time for the children to meet and get pictures taken with Santa. Santa received lots of smiles and hugs as well.
It was a blessing to partner with Calvary Chapel Lone Mountain, who supplied over 20 volunteers. Calvary Chapel also provided a jumpy house, games, face painters, popcorn and hot cocoa. The Chapel even manned a prayer table where we prayed for those guests wanting prayer.
Thankful for Santa’s Helpers
Special thanks goes out to our partners at LVMPD. We appreciated them showing up in force to maintain a stable environment and to reinforce that the officers behind the badge are good people. Additional thanks goes to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. The Mission provided the space needed for receiving and storing the presents. The Mission also provided space the assemble each gift bag that was filled with love and toys.

Glen Lerner Gives Back Sponsors Project Hero Honor Ride 2018
Glen Lerner Gives Back is proud to have sponsored the annual Project Hero Honor Ride for 2018.
The Project Hero Honor Ride is a non-competitive cycling event where people who are active in the military, veterans, first-responders, and others all get to ride on a variety of trails, anywhere from 10 – 100 miles in length. Project Hero was founded in 2008, and it is a groundbreaking national non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans and first responders who are affected by PTSD, TBI, and other injuries find resilience and joy in their lives.
Our own IT Manager, Jan Santiago, showed up to the November 10 event, along with over 750 other riders to the 62-mile-long course in Las Vegas. The trail began at the Clark County Government Center, went south down Las Vegas Boulevard, west around Red Rock Canyon, and finally downhill back to the start.
The Las Vegas Fire Department, its Honor Guard, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police all showed up to honor our veterans. The event began with the hoisting of the American flag between two fire trucks, and riders on nearly every type of bicycle began their ride by passing through twenty American flags at the starting line, symbolizing the average of twenty veterans who commit suicide on a daily basis because of PTSD.
