LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Las Vegas Valley is getting ready for the Super Bowl in February, but before the Big Game happens, there are many events taking place to help the community.
The NFL, the Las Vegas Raiders and the Super Bowl Host Committee are teaming up with local schools and recreation centers for “Super Kids-Super Sharing,” an event aimed to collect books, sports equipment and school supplies. The Super Kids-Super Sharing initiative has been implemented in every Super Bowl host community for the past 24 years and has collected hundreds of thousands of items to help local youth in the Super Bowl host communities.
“We want Las Vegas to be excited about the Super Bowl and when it comes back we want people to be excited about that as well,” said Myisha Boyce, Chief Community Engagement officer, Las Vegas Super Bowl Host Committee. “So over the past several months we’ve been working with diverse business owners, we’ve been working with our area non-profits, we’ve been pouring into this community from the unhoused to trafficking and now you can see leading up to the event now, we’re pouring back into the environment.”
