Community Service Committee Update – November 2021

Thank you to the NAIOP Community Service Committee and NAIOP members for your valued efforts to service the Las Vegas community throughout the summer months.

The group kicked off summer with the Communities in Schools college scholarship application fundraiser. The $2,921 raised during the fundraiser allowed graduating high school seniors the ability to submit college applications and pursue their dreams of attending college.

Next up was the annual Street Teens donation drive. Street Teens is a local non-profit dedicated to assisting homeless and at-risk youth. Our yearly involvement with the organization allows Street Teens to provide services that empower teens to strive towards a bright future. This year, the committee raised 411 total items (food and non-food) and collected monetary donations totaling $830.

Throughout August, members collected donations for the Hollingsworth Elementary School Drive. The supplies donated will help enable students and teachers go to school proud and empowered having the tools necessary to succeed. The group went above and beyond this year and collected 11,688 total student supplies and 162 total teacher supplies totaling $2,543.39.

Our Helping Hands of Vegas Valley donation drive was held at our October breakfast and our 3 drop off locations. The drive helps to support seniors in need throughout the valley. Often, seniors find themselves having to pay for either their prescriptions or food. We want to alleviate those worries and with YOUR help, our event was a success. We collected 1,164 pounds of canned and nonperishable food, 222 rolls of toilet paper, 48 rolls of paper towels, paper plates and plastic cutlery, as well as $740.00 in cash donations that will support seniors for months to come.

Next up is our EARLY TOY DRIVE through December 3rd.  We’re collecting toys for CASA Foundation of Las Vegas who puts on a wonderful annual holiday event for the foster kids in Southern Nevada. This year will be another drive through and their goal is for each child to receive $50 worth of gifts. We have three ways to donate and a list of suggested toys/gift cards. Note that the drive is early this year (instead of at our holiday event). See details here.

Contact us if you are interested in joining or would like more details on past or upcoming events. With your support, our efforts will continue to make a meaningful impact on the Las Vegas Valley.
