LAS VEGAS - The 8 on Your Side team is here for you - making a difference in Las Vegas.

"I like helping the community of Las Vegas - trying to get done as much as I can to get their problems solved," said 8 on Your Side volunteer Robert Reyes.

Reyes started with 8 on Your Side in July and has earned a reputation as the team's bulldog. When he's on the case, he's determined to get you results.

"I make sure that I am very persistent, and I make sure I try and get answers and get as much as I can done for that person," he said.

Gloria Gonzalez started with 8 on Your Side in 2007. Her only goal is getting you justice.

"Like most people… I get frustrated because things don't move at all or not fast enough," she said. "You're like helping the little guy."

"When they turn to Channel 8, I believe it is because they have gone everywhere else, and this is it. This is the last stop," she said.

The team answers phone calls, e-mails and Facebook posts every day and responsibly researches each problem.

"We are building a tremendous amount of information here that's going to be available to whoever sits in this seat and tries to help someone," Gonzalez said.

They prove every day, in every way they are on your side. "You should definitely call. It will get you a solution as quickly as possible," said one volunteer.

If you have a problem, 8 on Your Side is here to solve it. The team has already helped thousands of people across the valley and given viewers more than $100,000 back.

There's no better day than Monday to call 8 on Your Side. From 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., Michelle Mortensen and her team will hold a phone bank for viewers who wish to call 8 on Your Side. Call 650-1907, and you will be put in touch with an 8 on Your Side team member.

If you'd like to be part of Michelle's team, she's always looking for great volunteers.
