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.
