This was our last week of camps for Week of Hope Las Vegas. We were greeted with thirty youth from Arizona and California. We worked with five different non-profit organizations and ministries throughout this week. The volunteers are absolutely amazing. We had a ton of positive feedback this summer and they were able to make a lasting impact in the Las Vegas community.

There were two projects that we “merged” together this year. In the morning we would go to Spread the Word Nevada, and clean books for a few hours. In the afternoon, the same group of volunteers would hop in their van and travel about three miles down the road to Club Christ Ministries to help urban youth with their summer reading programs. Both agencies were impressed with the vounteers as Debbie Sandusky, with Spreading the Word Nevada, emailed me saying “The young people and leaders were a pleasure to work with.” Evan Hartsell, Director of Club Christ messaged me saying “Thanks for sending team to Club Christ Ministries again this year through Week of Hope!  It was a HUGE help kicking off our new center and the teens did a top notch job serving the kids!”
