Franchised New-Car Dealers Donate $25,000 to Three Square Food Bank of Las Vegas
TYSONS, Va. (March 8, 2022)—In support of the cities that host its annual show, NADA announced a $25,000 donation to the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas. Established in 2007, Three Square is Southern Nevada's only food bank and the area's largest hunger-relief organization.
“There are more than 131,000 children living in a food-insecure household—that’s one in four kids who don’t always know where their next meal is coming from,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square. “When we talk about kids who don’t have enough to eat, that number should be zero. With generous community partners such as NADA, we can continue to provide wholesome meals to children and families in need.”
Three Square, a member of Feeding America, a national network of member food banks that fight to end hunger, will use the funds for their Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign, which supports Three Square’s Childhood Nutrition Programs, ensuring children receive wholesome, nutritious meals after school, over the weekend and during the summer months.
“NADA has a long history of supporting local organizations in cities that host its annual show,” said NADA Show Committee Chairman Scott Dube. “Dealers across the country are committed to the communities that they live and work. We are privileged to support Three Square’s work to end hunger in the Las Vegas area.”
