LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - 50 cots from the local chapter of The Red Cross have been donated to the Salvation Army Southern Nevada. 

The donation will allow the non-profit to expand their nightly shelter space to accommodate that many more of our homeless neighbors. The new space will be open beginning Monday evening.

With the recent closure and now re-opening of Catholic Charities’ shelter at a much lower capacity due to social distancing, additional beds become even more necessary in the Corridor of Hope.  The supplementary shelter at The Salvation Army will occupy space building 35 on their Homeless Services Campus. These 50 cots will create shelter for 20 women and 30 men within the social distancing guidelines of the CDC.

Major Randy Kinnamon, Clark County Coordinator for The Salvation Army, said, “Partnerships with other organizations like the Red Cross make it possible for us to better serve our community.  When things are particularly difficult, it is a blessing to know that our partners are more than willing to step up and assist us in helping our neighbors in need.”
