On June 18th, the Las Vegas Rescue Mission hosted a community partner breakfast to announce the launch of “Makeover the Mission”, their new campaign to raise money to renovate “Shelter of Hope”, their facility providing dozens of women and children homes. The breakfast took place at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission Dining Hall (480 W. Bonanza Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89106). Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said, “So many wonderful things are happening in our city, especially here at the mission, but we have so much more to do. And it does start with a safe place to put your head down at night.”
The dining hall was filled with guests including, the host, Heather Engle, CEO of Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Founder of Veterans Village Dr. Arnold Stalk, Councilwoman Victoria Seaman, representatives of Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Congresswoman Susie Lee, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Carpenters Union Local 1977, Einstein Bagels, Bush Construction, Las Vegas Review Journal, Henderson Chamber of Commerce, Nevada State Bank, Brady Industries, Cox business security, many other construction companies and volunteers from the rescue mission and Veterans Village.
