From 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 09, 2019, our Las Vegas Outreach team barbecued 700 hot dogs for guests who showed up to the Giving Project. The location for this day of giving was the City of Las Vegas Courtyard (Homeless Resource Center) located at 1401 N. Las Vegas Blvd., 89101.
Guests in attendance were also able to get IDs, eye glasses, as well as lots of clothing, blankets, and medical services.
“The best part of participating in the Giving Project was seeing the big smiles that light up the faces of many guests who attended the event,” stated Guy Williams, community outreach coordinator at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys.
Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys is proud to once again be giving back in support of Las Vegas Sportz Foundation’s (LVSF) Game Saver Program spring pre-participation physical evaluation and heart screening event for local student-athletes. The Saturday, February 23, 2019, event is the sports foundation’s first physical and heart screening event of the year for student-athletes ages 10 to 18.
Student-athletes and their guardians can find the FREE event at The Space (3460 Cavaretta Ct., Las Vegas, NV 89103), located off Polaris Ave., just North of Harmon Ave. The event begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. Online registrations can be made in advance to secure a specific time slot.
Saving lives one screening at a time.
Since the program’s launch in 2013, over 450 local kids have been screened and over a dozen kids were found to have potential life-threatening heart abnormalities!
Physicians were able to detect these cardiac abnormalities in young athletes based on the combined use of an electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram (ECHO), and a qualitative exam and review of personal and family history.

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.
