As we welcome in the New Year, we would like to take a moment to reflect and thank the NAIOP Southern Nevada Community Service Committee Members and all of NAIOP Membership for your valiant efforts toward supporting our community during the challenging times that 2020 brought us all.

Many thanks to the NAIOP Southern Nevada Community Service Committee Members for your valiant efforts towards supporting our community during these challenging times.

In early October, committee members participated in a career fair at Hollingsworth Elementary. Members met virtually with students and shared their insight and day-to-day duties as professionals in the Real Estate Industry… it’s good to start them young!

Thank you to the entire NAIOP membership for your participation in the Helping Hands of Vegas Valley Donation Drive. Throughout the month of October, we were able to collect donations that had a total weight of 1,172 lbs, including 461 total pieces of paper products. An additional $940.00 was raised, which will continue to support Senior Citizens in the community for months to come.

Throughout November, members of the Community Service Committee sponsored families and collected donations to make Thanksgiving Turkey Baskets for families in need. These baskets consisted of all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal, as well as non-perishable foods to stock their pantries. Thank you for your efforts in getting quality items to fill these baskets.

December came up quickly, which meant it was time to prepare for our annual CASA Foundation Toy Drive. We accepted cash donations, unwrapped toys, and donations through our Amazon wish list. The collective efforts of the membership helped us to be able to donate over 300 toys for the CASA Foundation.

Last but not least, to wrap the year up, Committee Members donated items and assembled 150 care packages to distribute at Catholic Workers meal service. These care packages were stuffed to the brim, consisting of items such as toiletries, snacks, first aid items, mittens and hats. Thank you to all of those who participated.

As we head in to the New Year, we are excited to share with you the 2021 events that the Committee will be taking part in. Keep an eye out in your emails for more information detailing these future events or are interested in joining the committee, please let us know.
