According to Debbie Fatkin, director of Clark County Community Services, around 600 volunteers helped with the event, and that help was needed.

Close to 1,100 families registered to received donations this year.

Those families received boxes containing food and household items and they were also able to select clothing.

Volunteers also fed those who came through the doors on Wednesday and kids got to visit with Santa.
