Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- More backpacks are going to needy children thanks to the generosity of GES Shared Services employees.

Friday, over 100 backpacks were collected at the GES headquarters off of the 215 near Rainbow and Buffalo.

The company says the event was centered around celebrating families and helped to launch the Shared Services Community Share program. In the future the program will support school aged youth.
