Members of NAIOP Southern Nevada Community Service committee have gone to great lengths to serve others during this challenging year.

According to Community Service Chairwoman Patti Dillon, NAIOP members have donated thousands of dollars in food, clothing, hygiene products and school supplies to homeless teens, senior citizens, at-risk youth and medically fragile children throughout Southern Nevada this year. They have also volunteered hundreds of hours of their time.

For many years, NAIOP Southern Nevada has organized and executed community service projects that benefit local nonprofits, including CASA Foundation Las Vegas, Communities In Schools of Nevada, Helping Hands of Vegas Valley, Hollingsworth Elementary School, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Street Teens, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas.

Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the committee to get more creative and to reframe its service projects, while still providing volunteer opportunities for members. So far in 2021, NAIOP members have volunteered 199 hours to nonprofits throughout Southern Nevada.  In 2020 NAIOP volunteer hours totaled nearly 1,300 hours including 720 hours at the renovation project at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children and 156 hours working on the Communities in Schools Thanksgiving event.

For example, committee members designed a different delivery plan for their Communities in Schools Thanksgiving meal project. Instead of the 24 families picking up the decorated holiday meal box from school, committee members personally delivered a complete Thanksgiving meal and a grocery gift card to each family’s home. Communities in Schools recognized NAIOP’s commitment to their mission by awarding their “Community Volunteer Group” award to NAIOP Southern Nevada at their “Power Within” event in May.

And, NAIOP’s support for Make-A-Wish was provided virtually this year through the “What would you do for a Make-A-Wish donation” challenge. A record-setting $14,000 was raised, nearly tripling the $5,000 goal for 2021. Committee members sang bravely, ate bugs, had pies and eggs thrown at them and endured strenuous workouts, all to raise money for this cause.

Despite the closures that the Pandemic brought, the NAIOP Southern Nevada’s Community Service Committee went above and beyond to ensure the local groups that they partner with were served.

Throughout March and April, the Committee members participated in Make-A-Wish Walk for Wishes with a 2021 Virtual Fundraising Campaign challenge called, “What will you do for a Make-A-Wish donation?” Our committee members got creative with fun and entertaining challenges of their own. Members pledged to complete their challenges for each donation goal met. The group exceeded their fundraising goal of $5,000 collecting over $12,000 in donations!  The generous donations to Make-A-Wish of Southern Nevada create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses within our own community.

During May, the Committee held a donation drive for Street Teens, a local non-profit organization dedicated to assisting homeless youth.  Donations included food, water, personal hygiene products, paper products, etc. These donations help provide support to the at-risk youth and empower them to strive towards a bright future.

As we head into summer, we are gearing up to kick-off our 2nd Annual Communities in Schools college application fee fundraiser. Details are here.  Watch for our school supply drive for Hollingsworth Elementary School soon.  Keep an eye out for both of these events on your email and our social media.

In order to evaluate changes and improvements, the first step is to survey our customers. We would appreciate your genuine and candid feedback about our performance and the issues that you feel are important.

The survey asks a few pointed questions about each stage of the project lifecycle: initiation (New Development Center), design, inspection, construction, meter sets and the new construction portal.

Click here for the Survey Link.  The survey will be open through Thursday, July 15.

Name: Terry Resch
Title: Senior Account Executive Enterprise
Company: Cox Business
Years in the Industry: 20 years

Where are you originally from? I moved to Vegas in 2014 for Cox Business. I was working for the Cable Provider of Minneapolis/St. Paul. I was that crazy lady still wearing shorts all year the first year I was here. I didn’t need a winter jacket coming from one of the coldest states that Minnesota is.

What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally? The connections to the people working on the same growth for Southern Nevada that I am working every day. NAIOP educates me on the importance of building and growing our region. NAIOP is a valuable education every time I am engaged.

What has been your favorite experience?  My 1st members only event was the mixer at Stoney’s Country Club with line dancing. There I met the future President at the time, Dave Strickland. He introduced me to the people in the room. People were so welcoming and caring. It was there, that I knew NAIOP was my people and that membership was going to be a valuable part of my exploration of the business of southern Nevada.

Who have I met or become closer friends with at NAIOP: It’s not fair to name one person. I will say the Membership and Communications Committees has opened the door to new friendships and relationships. That’s really where the magic happens. I would tell anyone that thinks I don’t have time or can’t commit to try it. It’s the time to get close and create those bonds. You also learn so much. Everyone is there to support NAIOP and each other.

What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada community? I’m so glad Cox Business and Terry Resch was there to help us on our project. Cox Business and their technology offerings complete any project. Together, we can do great things.
