Upon joining MGM I wanted to be a part of something bigger than me. When Chef Brad and I volunteered at the Rescue Mission it enabled us to help our community and hopefully enrich the lives of the people we help. We are both so thankful that we get to be a part of something as great as the Mission.

“I enjoy my time at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission as a volunteer. It allows me to give back by helping serve others. I volunteer regularly because longevity in any activity allows for a deeper and more meaningful experience. So come down and try it! You’ll be so happy you did.”

~ John B.

Volunteering at The Las Vegas Rescue Mission has given me an opportunity to help people that are in a position of need. I myself have been in this position before. The Mission provides me a safe and reliable place where I am able to give back to my community and provide encouragement. They are very caring and involved with the people that are attending there and make me happy to see a place that is dedicated to uplifting the community.
