M.V. Nonprofit Offering Food Pantry Services

Cool Story - M.V. Nonprofit Offering Food Pantry Services

Residents of the Moapa Valley are benefiting from new chances thanks to a recently founded nonprofit group called "Brooke's Good Deeds." The group launched a food pantry on Tuesday, June 28, to provide food for individuals of all ages.

The organization Brooke's Good Deeds was founded by Gary and Shanna McPheters. They moved to Henderson after the terrible passing of their 15-year-old daughter, Brooke, who was struck by a drunk driver while jogging with a friend in August 2013. Brooke was originally from Anchorage, Alaska.

After losing their baby, they came to Vegas in search of sunshine. Henderson, though, was expanding too quickly.

The McPheters family moved to Moapa Valley after spending four years in Henderson. They adore the Moapa Valley. They won't ever leave this place. Never at all.

The goal of Brooke's Good Deeds is to carry on Brooke's legacy of selfless service to others. In her honor, they feel grateful and humbled to be able to assist the community.

The Las Vegas food bank "Three Square" provides funding for the pantry, which is maintained by volunteers. The facility and other essentials are funded by a grant from Three Square, which also provides food.

Shanna said, "Three Square has never had a program out here like this one. Therefore, everyone benefits."

"Golden Groceries" and an all-ages pantry are two distinct programs accessible to locals. Golden Groceries offers wholesome extra food to customers 60 years of age and older. A dietician develops customized meal programs that benefit and appeal to that age group.

Once a month, any household member who is above 60 may choose something from the pantry. Seniors who are housebound will receive deliveries from the McPheters.

Rural delivery will go wherever they need to go. All over, whatever is required. They simply do not want to deprive anyone of meals.

At least 400 people should receive Golden Groceries each month is the target. When the snowbirds return and the services are extended to Mesquite, Shanna anticipates that the numbers will rise quickly.

She simply hopes they can achieve the objective. But Moapa Valley is currently their top priority.

Families and individuals of all ages are welcome to use the all-ages pantry. Pallets of food, as well as occasionally paper products and hygiene items, are donated to the initiative by various organizations. If requested, people can come to pick up extra groceries once a week.

The pantry will be organized to resemble a shop. A volunteer will gather information such as contact details, birth dates, and household size on the initial visit. Following that, participants will receive a fob that must be scanned each time they visit the pantry.

It's quite nice since it will all be automatic. Everything will be tracked by the fob. All they need to do to obtain their food is scan it.

The growth of Brooke's Good Deeds has been rapid. Because they believe in [Brooke's Good Deeds] and want to assist the people as soon as possible, they have been working somewhat swiftly.

Although the group began as a food pantry, the McPheters have enormous hopes to expand it into a full range of services. This will involve therapy, support groups, and grieving support groups for both children and adults. Additionally, they will provide classes on dementia and deal with senior citizens.

With wrap-around services, Shanna said, "we look at the big picture." Not merely well, I fed them and that took care of their problems. We consider what other resources we might connect you with to help you succeed.

By the end of the summer, the McPheters intend to have the wrap-around services ready. The food bank will be operational in the interim at 3475 North Moapa Valley Boulevard, which used to be the site of LV Roadsters. The pantry is accessible by appointment or from 8 am to noon on weekdays. Call 702-283-6118 to schedule an appointment.

They've put a lot of effort into it and want it to succeed. All they want to do is aid everyone they can.
