Center Donates to Charity and Local Families
December 19, 2012 (Las Vegas, NV): Smith Plastic Surgery, a Las Vegas-based cosmetic surgery center and medical spa, has donated over $4,000 this month in new toys and shoes to the Families for Effective Autism Treatment and Toys for Tots. Smith Plastic Surgery employees also came together to adopt local families in need for the holidays, providing new jackets, shoes and toys for members of the family.
Holiday giving has become a tradition at the surgery center, and owner Lane F. Smith, M.D. encourages his employees to give what they can: “We are fortunate to have a roof over our heads, food in our refrigerators, and toys under the trees for our children. As a work family, we want to help to those less fortunate, especially during the holiday season.”
Dr. Smith spearheaded the holiday giving by adopting two other area families, providing new clothing, shoes, toys, and rent money for the families. Inspired by the doctor, employees adopted a third family in need. All three families were identified and screened by a local church.
Smith Plastic Surgery, located at West Sahara Avenue and Fort Apache Road, is one of the West’s premier providers in plastic and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Lane F. Smith is widely renowned for his professional and academic achievements in the field and has practiced in Las Vegas for over a decade.
