Rescue Mission Gift Bag Event
Discount Retail Store Services, a national retail store development company headquartered in Las Vegas, is gearing up to give back to the Las Vegas community during this holiday season.
Helping our Community
DRSS has identified and contacted key groups to partner with in this effort, such as Safe Nest, Shade Tree Shelter, The Las Vegas Rescue Mission, and "Tent City." The company will be preparing over 880 gift bags that will be distributed to those in need served by these organizations.
The various charities have provided their clients' needs by gender and age. The company's staff will be gathering this Thursday, December 16th, at 4 pm to assemble the gift bags with the requested items for those in need.
Something for Everyone
Special care is being taken to make sure that every recipient gets items most needed. "We have selected items specifically for boys and girls under 4, aged 4-8, 9-13, and teenagers. We have separate assortments for men and women," says Jim Wichert, company President. "We want to make sure that as many people as possible receives items that are most useful. More importantly, we want them to know that someone cares."
"The response has been overwhelming," says Wichert. "Virtually all of our staff of 35 has volunteered to assemble and distribute the gift bags. We have purchased all the items needed from our various suppliers around the country; many of them wanted to be involved immediately, and have donated products to be used in this effort. We know how great the need is in the Las Vegas Valley, this year more so than most. We feel fortunate to be able to extend a helping hand to our community, especially at this time of year."
