On Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, more than 500 students from William K. Moore Elementary School received ‘bags of cheer’ from representatives of the Las Vegas Hospitality Association (LVHA). Students from Kindergarten through 5th grade received bags filled with shoes, socks, coats, blankets, gloves, hates, clothes as well as toys, games and books.
For the eleventh consecutive year, LVHA “Fill a Bag with Cheer” program has paired the organization’s members with children in need for the holiday season. Each member compiled a personalized holiday bag for each child based on a list of items with that child’s needs. In addition, Santa Claus made a special visit to the students.
With the help of sponsors including but not limited to: Pepsi Co., Tropicana Resort & Casino, Zappos, Brady Linen Services and Shepard Exposition Services, the LVHA was able to set a record number of bags filled with cheer. Additionally, Zappos made an additional donation towards the 2019 Fill A Bag with Cheer program to provide every child with new shoes.
