"Bar Rescue" star Jon Taffer meets with Children from St. Jude's Ranch at Toys 'R Us
Las Vegas local Jon Taffer, host of the popular television show ‘Bar Rescue’ and an award-winning nightclub and bar consultant, has given children of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children the chance to pay it forward and feel the holiday spirit by purchasing presents for themselves and for others this holiday season (Pictured: Nicole Taffer, Jon Taffer and Chef Vic Vegas)

While Jon transforms people’s lives every week on his show, he has extended a similar type of opportunity to abused, neglected and homeless children, showing them how to receive and give.

On December 5, 2015, Jon met 16 St. Jude’s Ranch children, aged seven to 13, at Toys ‘R Us located at 1425 West Sunset Road, Henderson, Nev. They enjoyed a meet and greet with donuts and juice. Jon gave each child $50 to purchase a gift for themselves and $50 more to purchase a gift for someone special in their life. Each child had a volunteer personal shopper to help them shop for an hour, and after, Jon took holiday photos with the group.

“The gift of giving and paying it forward has always been traits I consider to be invaluable,” said Jon Taffer. “St. Jude’s Ranch for Children is a beacon to many kids within our community, I’m honored to be part of such a wonderful event this holiday season to brighten these children’s spirits.”

“For many of the children and families that call St. Jude’s Ranch for Children home, the holidays can be a reminder of all the things they have lost due to abuse, neglect and homelessness,” said Myesha Wilson, executive director of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. “We can’t thank Jon Taffer enough for reaching out to us to help alleviate some of the stress and needs of the children during this time.”

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children is a 501(c)(3) organization that saves the lives of traumatized children. The charity helps abused, neglected and homeless children and young adults, ages 0 to 25, by providing customized therapy and tools to break the cycle of abuse, as well as by keeping families and siblings together. The ultimate goal is to help these individuals find a forever family or achieve self-sufficiency. Approximately 60% of the children have been physically abused, 40% sexually abused, many have suffered both physical and sexual abuse, and 100% have been neglected.
