We will be hosting a Christmas party event for families that we are adopting on Christmas, on December 24th, 2016, at Whist Stove and Spirits, where we will have food, Christmas presents and items for at-risk, homeless and foster families that we are adopting throughout the Las Vegas area. We work with organizations such as Boys Town, Apple Grove Foster Care, Your Choice Behavioral, All About You Counseling, some of our adopted title-1 schools, and others!
We’ve received nominations for 13 different families that are in need this holiday season from the organizations listed above. We’re looking to raise funds for these families to purchase the items they need, and also give them some items to have fun together as a family to make their holiday season enjoyable.
Here’s a list of families nominated:
The families are nominated through the organizations we listed above. The money that you donate will be used to get the items these families requested to help them get through this holiday season! Some of the items that are needed are: clothing, non-perishable food items, hygiene items, beds, couch and small kitchen table, toys, household cleaning items, pull ups, shoes, fans, and gift cards to purchase food, or even nights out as a family, like movies, or other family friendly places. Your help is greatly appreciated!!
The Ogden Foundation in Las Vegas, was founded by Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee Jonathan Ogden and his wife Kema. It was established as a tax-exempt charitable organization to assist young people in disadvantaged communities develop self esteem through athletics and education.
Jonathan and Kema have lived in the Las Vegas area for a combination of 45 years where they both saw a need to get more involved in the communities of Las Vegas. Together, they decided to create The Ogden Foundation to help the children in the area.
Both foundations are dedicated to supporting their communities by building programs through strategic partnerships. Since local government cannot meet all social and recreational needs of our community, The Ogden Foundation and The Jonathan Ogden Foundation respond to this void by establishing initiatives and adopting projects that support families, unite communities, and promote healthy lifestyles.
Funding is obtained through individual donations, corporate sponsorships, matching fund campaigns, and partnerships with other agencies. Our record of success has resulted in on-going partnerships with community members, businesses, and other non-profit organizations.
Our mission is to instill healthy living habits and a sense of self-worth in Las Vegas and Henderson’s underprivileged population through health, wellness, education and empowerment programs. These are provided for at-risk youth and families in order to help build confidence, self esteem and healthy lifestyles. We believe in helping our youth and families achieve healthy bodies and healthy minds through these programs.
