Fans can bring non-perishable food items and cash donations to help fill a Mayflower moving truck on Friday, Nov. 2, from 4 – 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 3 – 7:30 p.m. Those who donate a minimum of five items will receive a voucher good for one free ticket to an upcoming Wranglers game of their choice. Most needed items include canned tuna, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned soups, and dried or canned beans. Puliz Moving and Storage has graciously supplied the Mayflower truck, and it will be located at the southeast entrance of the Orleans Arena.

All donations will benefit Three Square Food Bank, which has received over 10,000 pounds of food from Wranglers food drives since the first “Fill the Mayflower” event in 2009. The current Wranglers team also spent last Wednesday night, Oct. 24, helping to pack over 2,400 pounds of pantry boxes to help support the Southern Nevada community.

Hunger Facts:

  • One out of six households in Nevada struggle with hunger (is food-insecure)
  • Three Square, through their program partners, serves more than 100,000 men, women, children and seniors each and every month
  • 50% of Clark County School District students were enrolled in the free and reduced price meal program (more than 150,000 students) in the 2011-12 school year

Three Square was established to end hunger in the valley by providing wholesome, nutritious food to non-profit organizations that serve a wide range of Southern Nevadans in need. A national model project inspired by Eric Hilton with a grant provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with the gaming industry, businesses, non-profit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the CCSD, governmental entities, the media and thousands of volunteers to efficiently and effectively serve hope to those in our community struggling with hunger. Three Square currently provides more than 24 million pounds of food and grocery product – the equivalent of nearly 18 million meals – per year to more than 600 Program Partners including non-profit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites throughout Southern Nevada. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks. For additional information, visit www.threesquare.org.
