For the first time in almost 2 years, Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada opened their indoor dining room on November 9th. Leslie Carmine, a woman working with the nonprofit, has expressed how difficult it has been to reopen. "You kind of take for granted what it's like to be able to wash your hands in a sink," she says.

More individuals in the community needed help during the pandemic, so Catholic Charities took the meals to the streets and served them in an outdoor pavilion. Opening the doors of the indoor dining room helps the nonprofit "welcome our clients in to a little dignity and compassion," Carmine said.

David White, a client of Catholic Charities, explains that the indoor dining room helps serve fresher food, creates a sense of belonging, and allows good conversation with others. "We do have a place to eat and communicate. It's a little community, but it is a community."

Catholic Charities is now looking forward to putting their efforts into their food pantry. They are currently accepting frozen turkey donations for the holiday season. (FOX5)
