|ACES DONATE TO KLOTHES 4 KIDS|
From hoops to helping out, members of the Las Vegas Aces’ front office team drove the Aces branded truck filled with clothes and giveaways to donate to local non-profit, Klothes 4 Kids. Klothes 4 Kids is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that was founded in 2017, by 14 year old Nijel Murray out of an experience he had with a kid who was fostered by his family. When his foster brother left Child Haven, his clothes were either too big or too small and he was embarrassed to wear them. He had school the next day so Nijel’s parents scrambled to purchase clothing for him. Seeing the stress of his parents and the sadness of his foster brother, Nijel knew he didn’t want other kids and families to experience this so he wanted to do something about it. That’s why he created Klothes 4 Kids (K4K) in the Las Vegas area, which collects and provides foster kids new clothing and basic necessities.
