Las Vegas couple continues community support

"As many continue to struggle across Las Vegas after a year of economic hardships, one couple is making it their mission to help others make ends meet for the Easter holiday.

8 News Now first met Jim and Julie Danner back in November 2020, when they delivered Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of families in need.

Now, they’re turning their attention to the Easter holiday and calling on the community for help.

The Danners are gathering over 400 meals and around 1200 holiday baskets for kids and families, but they need everyone’s input to make it happen.

They said they have hope for these next few months, as COVID-19 cases decline and businesses open, but many are still trying to get back on their feet. This is why they want to assist others in any way they can manage.

If anyone in the valley is looking for ways to help, consider starting with food or extra change.

The Danners will use any donation they receive to make a true difference in the world.
