Where is Three Square located?

We are located at 4190 N. Pecos Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89115 (major cross streets are E. Craig Rd. and N. Pecos Rd.). When you arrive, please enter the North Campus Building.

Can Three Square pick up my donations?

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to pick up food drives.

How can I help Three Square the most?

Monetary donations provide the greatest benefit; we have buying power that allows us to do more with $1 than you might when you go to the store to purchase canned goods for a food drive. For every $1 donated, Three Square is able to distribute three meals.

Even if you have committed to holding a food drive, please consider the option of adding a fund drive or virtual food drive. Many individuals would rather write a tax-deductible check or make a donation online rather than picking up extra food at the grocery store for the food drive.

Are monetary donations tax-deductible?

Financial donations made payable to Three Square may be tax-deductible.

Will I receive a receipt for my donations?

Yes, donations are weighed once they arrive back to our warehouse, so please make sure that your donations are clearly marked with your organization’s name so that we can properly account for them. We cannot guarantee a receipt for unmarked or unlabeled donations. We cannot provide individual receipts to individuals that donate to a food drive.
