Las Vegas, NV – Local retailer Fisher Furniture joined hundreds of other independently owned furniture, appliance, bedding and consumer electronics dealers in Las Vegas to make great strides in the fight against child hunger.   Fisher Furniture, a Member of Nationwide Marketing Group, teamed with fellow retailers at the bi-annual PrimeTime buying show and convention, where members of their team joined efforts supporting No Child Hungry, the food distribution arm of respected charity My Neighbor’s Children.

At the event, Fisher Furniture was represented by President Vicki Moses Oberle and Executive Vice President Don Moses.  The show began with a meal-packing blitz, where over 87,000 meals for hungry children were packed in just 60 minutes.  The effort continued across the following days of the convention, reaching a total of over 185,000 meals.  Half the packaged meals were distributed locally in Las Vegas, with the remainder to be distributed in the coming months across the network of orphanages and areas of need as identified by No Child Hungry.

Fisher Furniture President Vicki Moses Oberle reflected on the efforts, saying, “It’s very important for us to make a difference in any way we can. We support many local causes and to help on a national and international level was very rewarding!”

This coming together of compassion and commerce at a trade show and convention was explained by Nationwide Marketing Group President Tom Hickman, who said, “Independent Businesses like Fisher Furniture are not only the backbone of the American economy, they’re the backbone of the American community as well.  The giving hearts of independent business owners is incomparable, and as part of the largest association of dealers in the furniture, appliance, bedding and consumer electronics industry, each dealer’s impact can be dramatically multiplied.  In addition to all that Fisher Furniture does locally in Ironton, Missouri and the surrounding area, their participation in this effort with No Child Hungry really makes a difference.”

William Lowry, President of No Child Hungry, added, “No Child Hungry is in the fight against hunger and believes it is winnable!  However, it will only be possible when groups of caring people lock arms to join the fight. The folks at Fisher Furniture and their fellow members of Nationwide are perfect examples. Their commitment and the deep level of care they extend to help change a child’s world is wonderful and is backed by a hands-on and boots-on-the-ground effort. No Child Hungry is proud to work with Fisher Furniture and their fellow independent retailers to bring change around the corner and around the world”.
