Happy Holidays

from the SAFY family

SAFY of Nevada’s family holiday party was a HUGE success! Everyone had a wonderful time at Glittering Lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway! It was the perfect way for everyone to gather and stay safe socially distanced. Thank you to all of our community partners and donors that helped us shower these youth experiencing foster care with gifts during this very difficult time. You all truly made this event special for so many children and families! We are honored to be your partner to be a helper, healer and builder of hope in the community!
