Helping Hands of Vegas Valley:

Throughout the month of October, NAIOP members participated in the Helping Hands of Vegas Valley food drive where they collected and donated 1,164 pounds of food, 222 rolls of toilet paper, 48 rolls of paper towels, paper plates and plastic cutlery. $740.00 was also collected that will support the elderly community for months to come.

Turkey Baskets:

The Community Service Committee teamed up with Communities in Schools this Thanksgiving and adopted 35 families to provide meals and groceries.  Each family was given a decorated basket that included all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal, groceries to stock their pantries for the month of December, and a grocery store gift card to purchase their perishables. The total donation value was $7,070.00. The committee went above and beyond to be sure it was a Thanksgiving meal the families would not forget!

CASA Foundation Toy Drive:

Each December, as the Community Service Committee is wrapping up their year of outreach events, members come together to collect toys for the CASA Foundation Toy Drive, and this year was no different! The group collected a total of 346 toys for groups of all ages. The smiles on the kids’ faces receiving the gifts were priceless!

Catholic Workers Food Serving & Homeless Care Packages:

A few years ago, the Community Service Committee members initiated an event where they provide care packages to the Las Vegas homeless community at the Catholic Workers breakfast service. The group started with just a few items per bag and are now up to 28 items per bag! The bags include beanies, blankets, toiletries, snacks, and other various items. This is a rewarding event that reminds us to count our blessings as we head into the Holidays!
