Together We Can All Make A Difference
Preparing Grade School Students For Success!
Backpack Filling Event
On July 23, 2022, SAHARA employees volunteered their time to help stuff backpacks with books and school supplies for underprivileged children. The backpacks and school supplies were donated by local organization Foodie Fit, with Robert E. Lake Elementary School hosting the event for three of the schools. This event was done as part of SAHARA Cares initiatives and the backpacks will be distributed to children in need on the first day of school in August.
Meruelo Family Scholarship
On July 21, 2022, SAHARA Las Vegas hosted the Meruelo Family Scholarship award presentation inside the Team Member Dining Room and honorary luncheon inside Zeffer’s Café. A total of $12,500 was awarded to five deserving dependents of SAHARA Las Vegas team members. During the event, all five scholarship winners were presented with jumbo $2,500 checks by chief vision and purpose officer Alexis Meruelo and general manager Paul Hobson. The Meruelo Family’s focus on education has fueled both companies’ community impact over the years.

In Support of Creating A Community Without Hunger
In May of 2022 we joined Las Vegas Restaurant Week to enhance Three Square Food Bank’s reach. Their mission is to provide meals for families and individuals facing hunger. $6 per menu sold was donated to Three Square to support their efforts. We’re so proud to share that we were able to raise over $5,600 through The Noodle Den and Bazaar Meat By José Andrés to help their efforts. If you would like to learn more about this organization or to support them, please visit threesquare.org
Robert E. Lake Elementary School
As part of our SAHARA Cares initiatives, we have adopted a local elementary school! Robert E. Lake is a title one school which provides education for disadvantaged, low-achieving, high poverty, and neglected children.
Their mission is to make an impact in the local Las Vegas community by supporting youth education programs and economic mobility for minorities, SAHARA Cares strives to recognize hardworking teachers and their commitment to their students, and it was an honor to host their end-of-year celebration at our AZILO Ultra Pool offering food, beverages and raffle prizes. In the words of the teachers, “it was magical.”
We’re looking forward to supporting the school with a back-to-school drive, food drives, reading to the students, and much, much more!
Epicurean Charitable Foundation
