For the ninth year in a row, NV Energy employees and their family members spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day volunteering at Three Square Food Bank as part of the national MLK Day of Service.
Volunteers filled 6,300 bags with kid-friendly, shelf-stable foods for Three Square’s BackPack for Kids Program. The bags provide nutrition to food-insecure children who might otherwise go hungry during the weekend.
The bag collection broke last year’s record of 6,010.
