Mainstreet de Las Vegas
Community support, including from the SFCF Community Resiliency Fund, has allowed MainStreet de Las Vegas to distribute over $34,000 directly to families impacted by the fires through modest $250 payments. These funds have been a lifeline for those impacted. Operating funds have also allowed MainStreet de Las Vegas to continue functioning at a time when we have directed much of our energy away from normal programming activity to focus on fire relief and also put our normal fundraising efforts on hold.
We are also now able to reimburse volunteers who have been critical to these efforts. Main Street de Las Vegas helped put together a team that coordinated meals for people in the most severely affected areas around Rociada and the twelve communities around Mora. This was a month-long effort that provided over 400 meals per day. Much of this effort was possible because of volunteers that were driving hundreds of miles each day to help.
Thank you again for your continued support. It means so much to all of us.
