The team from SOS Radio 90.5 / KSOS celebrated the reopening of the federal government on Monday by feeding 700+ Las Vegas TSA workers!
The TSA team at Las Vegas McCarren Airport worked faithfully for 35 days straight, not knowing when the paychecks would arrive. (This was the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, and even though the governemtn re-opened on Monday, the TSA agents aren’t expected to actually receive their paychecks until this weekend.)
The SOS Radio team wanted to encourage its local federal workers by feeding the whole TSA staff for the ENTIRE day! The SOS team provided meals for the breakfast, lunch, dinner AND overnight shifts on Monday, January 28th!
Johnny Marquez, a junior at Sierra Vista High School in Las Vegas, caught the vision and rallied his student council classmates to raise a couple hundred dollars in seed money to feed one of the TSA shifts. He reached out to other high school clubs like Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and ended up raising over $900 dollars! Flatbeds full Krispy Kreme Donuts, breakfast sandwiches from Truffles & Bacon Cafe, Papa John’s Pizzas and truckloads of beverages and desserts were delivered for all 4 TSA shifts.
Scott Herrold, Morning Show Host/Program Director of SOS Radio said, “The heart of our SOS Radio family is to let our community know what we love and care for their families. We wanted to celebrate the re-opening of the government with the TSA teammates who kept showing up for work all month without pay! We LOVE Las Vegas!”
