As tradition with the award winning food drive, celebrities and local personalities will lend their support for the cause making appearances throughout the day. Confirmed for 2012 are Celebrity Blogger/TV Host Robin Leach, Singer/Actress Pia Zadora, the Fantasy Girls, the Men of Thunder From Down Under, Mayor Pro Tem Stavros Anthony, TV Personality Heidi Hayes, FOX-5 Meteorologist Ted Pretty and Author Joe Vassallo. Vail invites fellow Las Vegans to come shop with our celebrities for nonperishable food items to donate to this great cause.
Smith’s Food & Drug has proudly been the host site for the food drive for 14 years and always provides a generous donation. Other sponsors include Hair Stylist Carlos Pacheco, KTNV TV-13, MAC Landscaping, KTNV-The Morning Blend, Houldsworth Russo & Company, FOX-5, Pictographics, Paragon Pools and UNLV EMBA Cohort11.
To date, the yearly food drive has collected over 44,480 lbs of non-perishable foods and personal hygiene items. The Food Drive was recognized nationally in April by the Make A Difference Day organization, Points of Light and Newsman’s Own Foundation as one of 10 notable projects from thousands held in 2011.
The Salvation Army Food Bank services over 200 families a day, 52 weeks a year!
