Jan 20: NV Energy to volunteer at Three Square Food Bank

For the sixth year in a row, NV Energy employees and family members will spend their Martin Luther King holiday volunteering at Three Square Food Bank, 4190 N. Pecos Road, as part of the national MLK Day of Service. NV Energy volunteers will fill backpacks for Three Square’s “Backpack for Kids” Program, which provides a bag of kid-friendly, shelf-stable foods to children who lack adequate food over the weekend.

The MLK Day of Service is a national initiative inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who devoted his life’s work to causes of equality and social justice. He taught that through nonviolence and service to one another, problems such as hunger and homelessness, prejudice and discrimination can be overcome.
