Three Square has been a major focus of Viva Vegas TV’s community outreach since mid 2013. Volunteers from Future M3dia Group and Viva Vegas TV help to man food bank at the College Park Baptist Church every Tuesday. Future M3dia Group CEO Sancho Van Ryan says: “We are delighted to be a part of Three Square’s highly successful program. Giving back to the community is an ongoing consistent part of our company ethos and that translates into our day to day actions and strategy.”
Haven’t heard of Three Square??? Three Square is a local food bank that helps store and distribute food locally in Southern Nevada to church food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and schools who work on the front lines to feed people in need to receive food and grocery products from Three Square. Three Square was founded to help people get food to their families – to survive, and get back on their feet. It may surprise with the facts below, but the reality is hunger is an issue faced by many Southern Nevadans:
- One in six Southern Nevadans struggle with hunger
- 58% of children in the Clark County School District receive free and reduced-price meals
- Nearly 40,000 children under the age of 18 are served each month by Three Square’s Agency Partners
The Cannery Casino & Hotel will host “Together We Can,” an evening of delicious food and drinks, live entertainment, and a live and silent auction to benefit Southern Nevada’s only food bank, Three Square, and the more than 340,000 people who are hungry in the Valley. Live musical performances will be presented by students from the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts.
