Bravo Team volunteers to help feed local families
At Bravo, we believe that volunteering can be a catalyst for social change: it transforms both the life of the beneficiary and that of the volunteer. Last Friday, Team Bravo experienced this first-hand by helping at Three Square (a Feeding America affiliate) in North Las Vegas.
Three Square serves four counties in Southern Nevada (Clark, Nye, Lincoln and Esmeralda), where the number of food-insecure persons is estimated to be more than 271,000. This means that 271,000 people in this area alone are not able to secure enough food for a healthy diet and active lifestyle, at some point during the year.
Three Square sources food, raises funds, and relies on volunteers to help supply their program partners with food and services. Three Square has a service network of community partners including nonprofits, schools, shelters, meal programs, and SNAP outreach sites. Last year, they distributed over 37,000,000 meals to food insecure families.
Volunteers, just like the Bravo Team, contributed over 147,000 hours or the equivalent of 70 full-time employees last year only. In just two hours, the Bravo Team was able to package over 3,000 pounds of produce, providing food for over 630 food insecure families in our community.
