Hakkasan Las Vegas employees ranging from hosts, cocktail waitresses and bar backs, to pastry chefs, managers and corporate team members joined forces in Three Square’s South Warehouse on Wednesday to individually stuff bags for the “Backpack for Kids” Program. Currently assisting more than 275 schools with more than 5,000 children, this program offers supplemental weekend meals to children on low-cost or free school lunch programs.

Even more Hakkasan happy helpers arranged Senior Share Boxes, which go towards serving more than 1,200 seniors per month. Finally, some employees packaged items for the Kid’s Café, which serves more than 90 after school programs and is a product of Feeding America.

Beyond their volunteer efforts, Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant will donate $5 for every patron served in December to directly support Three Square’s nearly 600 Program Partners in Southern Nevada. Additionally, the nightclub staff will individually raise contributions in support of Three Square’s food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs, faith-based organizations, senior centers and more.
