The team from SOS Radio 90.5/KSOS celebrated the reopening of the federal government on Monday, January 28, by feeding 700+ Las Vegas TSA workers. The TSA team at Las Vegas McCarran Airport worked faithfully for 35 days straight, not knowing when the paychecks would arrive. Even though the government reopened on Monday, the TSA agents weren’t set to receive paychecks until the weekend. The SOS team provided meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and overnight shifts on Monday, January 28.
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 and ended up raising over $900. 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 four 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 reopening of the government with the TSA teammates who kept showing up for work all month without pay. We love Las Vegas!”
