Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- This is National Volunteer Week and many of you are getting in on the fun, including employees of Southwest Medical Associates. But they volunteer year round and last year gave more than 12,000 hours of volunteer time.
Also in our mailbag, we got an email about City National Bank. They just gave $1,500 to Mr. Bahkta at West Career and Technical Academy to expand a literacy program he's been working on.
Finally, we found a picture from Olive Crest on Facebook of two backpacks that were going to a brother and sister, ages 9 and 11, who went into a foster home with nothing. The backpacks included walkie talkies so the kids can talk to each other in different rooms.
If you'd like to help Olive Crest in its mission to protect and place our children, here are the types of donations they need:
Gift cards (for items such as underwear, and socks)
Suitcases, tote bags, backpacks (without these garbage bags are usually provided)
