Las Vegas – Select Vegas Golden Knights players and staff members distributed complete Thanksgiving meals, including a turkey and non-perishable food items, to more than 800 Las Vegas families, along with HELP of Southern Nevada, on Monday.
The food distribution took place outside of the HELP of Southern Nevada Campus at 1640 E. Flamingo Road.
Starting on Monday, November 16, the 97.1-FM The Point (KXPT) annual Turkey-Thon Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit HELP of Southern Nevada began with a virtual effort to provide Las Vegas families in need with a Thanksgiving meal while upholding local health and safety standards.
