City Serve Nevada, a not-for-profit organization, is partnering with the International Church of Las Vegas (‘ICLV’) and Voice of the Veterans, a Veterans Outreach Organization, to give away $1 million worth of furniture and household goods to 1,000 Nevada veterans who may need assistance. Recipients must be able to be at a 12 March 2022 event in Las Vegas and must have a way to load and transport the donated goods.
NDVS has offered to help get the word out about this program. I am hoping you can share the word among your organizations so that those veterans with needs may benefit from this wonderful opportunity have the chance to apply. The attached application must be sent to City Serve at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 21, 2022.
Here is a statement from event organizers:
“This event is taking place to honor and thank veterans for their service to our state and nation. To meet your needs and express our gratitude, we have organized an incredible free event where new household items will be given to you. We are also thankful for our sponsors, especially Sambalatte coffee shop and its founder Luiz who will be providing good food, coffee and refreshments to all at this event. City Serve Nevada will give away new household products after a brief ceremony on March 12, 2022, which is designed to honor you and our great nation. If you are interested in attending, please complete the attached form and email it to email@example.com. When completing the attached form, please indicate the preferred products based on your needs and we will do our best to fulfill your requests. Although we cannot guarantee every request, we will be receiving furniture, diapers, refrigerators, and all kinds of household products. Once your form is received, our volunteer team from ICLV and Voice of the Veterans will try to match your request with the incoming products. We will do our best to make it a day to remember. All of our organizations are committed to helping veterans in our state. If you have any questions, please call Voice of the veterans at (702) 425-1480. Thank you for your service!”
This is not an NDVS program; we are simply helping to share information. Questions will need to be directed to the organizers at (702) 425-1480.
City Serve has not established a specific need “threshold,” this event is being offered to provide support to our veterans and currently serving National Guard, Reserves and Active Duty enlisted personnel stationed in Nevada.
Participants must show some sort of proof that they are a veteran when they go to pick up the donations. This can be a DD-214, a Veterans or Military ID Card, a Driver’s License with a Veteran Designation, or other identification. Event organizers are not really going to be too picky, but they want to make sure that they are supporting and honoring veterans.
Recipients must have a way to load and transport the donated goods; transportation is not available.
Applying is not a guarantee that a person will be selected to participate, although City Serve hopes to help as many veterans with need as possible.
In closing, I continue to be amazed at the outpouring of support for our veterans and their families and am grateful to organizations such as City Serve who are committed to helping others.
