Walker Furniture Launches Feeding Vegas Campaign
Retailer Walker Furniture has announced its new Feeding Vegas campaign is running for 45 days through Oct. 25 with a goal to feed more than 15,000 people. The company is guaranteeing the first 10,000 meals and for every purchase made during the campaign, Walker will add two more meals.
“There is a lot to be proud of in our city,” said owner Larry Alterwitz. “But there’s also a lot of need and feeding our community is one of them. No one should go hungry! That’s why we have partnered with Las Vegas Rescue Mission.”
Feeding America reports that in Nevada, 373,370 people are facing hunger and of them 122,450 are children.
“When Larry Alterwitz reaches out to us it is always a call to action and that is exactly what he did,” said Heather Engle CEO Las Vegas Rescue Mission. “With the current issues so many more are in need. Larry wanted to make sure no one goes without food. The Las Vegas Rescue Mission has been feeding people for 51 years and with this added support from Walker Furniture we will make sure no one is left hungry.”
“Food insecurity is an economic and social indicator of the health of a community,” adds Alterwitz. “A survey commissioned by the Food Research and Action Center found one in four Americans worry about having enough money to put food on the table in the next year. It wasn’t difficult for us to see the need.”
“We are so honored to partner with Walker Furniture,” added Engle. “I thank them for supporting us so we can serve our community.”
