Volunteer Appreciation Event for Family Promise of Las Vegas
Sponsors of Family Promise of Las Vegas Volunteer Appreciation Party
The Glen Lerner Gives Back team recently sponsored a volunteer appreciation event for Family Promise of Las Vegas. The event took place at the Railroad Museum in Boulder City, Nevada.
Thanks to Glen Lerner Gives Back’s sponsorship, approximately 85 volunteers were able to enjoy access to the museum which was later followed by a one-hour train ride. As they soaked in the history of the 100-year old rail cars, they also enjoyed a nice meal and entertainment.
“Partnering up with Family Promise of Las Vegas for this appreciation event was an easy choice. That was primarily due to the vital role they play in helping families with children in Clark County achieve sustainable housing. Unlike homeless shelters in our community, Family Promise is focused on providing overnight shelter and meals to individuals. They are also among the few that provide sustainable housing, especially for families with children. Since Family Promise is the only local organization filling these vital needs for individuals and families with children, we wanted to support them,” said Guy Williams, community outreach manager at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys.
Organization volunteers fill a variety of roles at each hosting site. These roles include cooking, serving meals, socializing with the guests, assisting parents with children and providing overnight stays. Volunteers also help with running the Day Center, fundraising activities and guest events.
“The volunteer program is the core of the Family Promise network. Therefore, we wanted to bless those who bless needy families in our community,” stated Glen Lerner.
Following the volunteer appreciation event, Program Services Director, Barbara Coggins stated, “We are thankful for Glen Lerner’s generosity in underwriting the evening. It was an awesome experience. It was the best appreciation event for our wonderful volunteers, and our volunteers are the backbone of Family Promise Las Vegas.”
