Joyce Haldeman, organizer of the giving machines said, “We’re so excited about having the giving machine back open again. It’s such a great opportunity for families or people to come down together as groups of friends.”

In 2019, the machines raised more than $800,000 in Las Vegas.

“It’s not just about helping children see the board, it’s helping them see their future. We really want to support these children to be successful in life and clear vision is one of those ways,” Stephanie Kirby, Eye Care 4 Kids said.

The machine will remain in Downtown Summerlin from Nov. 3 to Jan. 3 of 2022.

With the Giving Machines, changing a life is as easy as pushing a button. See how a simple act of service can help an entire community.
