Last week was a big week for the Chapter – we placed over 50 people displaced by a gas leak on Monday and Tuesday nights, and then from Tuesday afternoon on, the Red Cross has been responding to the area flooding that devastated so many people here in Southern Nevada. Assistance is ongoing and scores of people have received help from the Red Cross through the generous donations of people here in Southern Nevada.
But something else happened last week that bears recognition. The first graduating class of Boots to Business – our joint venture with the folks at MGM Resort International to employ veterans – took place on Monday afternoon. Nine new MGM employees went through additional training offered by the Red Cross and the MGM, and are on their way to long careers on the MGM Resorts International team.
