One of the greatest things that ever happened to me was becoming involved in charities. Especially when they involve my local community here in Las Vegas. It’s amazing getting the opportunity to help others in need. That is why Mompreneur Mogul is really happy to share a wonderful and life changing opportunity with you this weekend in Las Vegas.
If you are looking for a fun family volunteering opportunity this weekend, international nonprofit, Clean the World and Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS) are asking Las Vegas local to work a two-hour shift this weekend build 100,000 ONE Project hygiene kits for disaster relief efforts in the Las Vegas area and for major disasters in the United States.
Underscoring September as National Preparedness Month, LVS is hosting the community builds on Saturday, Sept. 20 and Sunday, Sept. 21 at The Venetian | The Palazzo as part of the company’s global corporate citizenship program, Sands Cares, and its ongoing partnership with Clean the World.
“Right in our own backyard, hundreds of families every year find themselves unexpectedly without access to their homes, personal items and sense of security,” said Scott Emerson, CEO for the American Red Cross Southern Nevada Chapter. “These 100,000 kits will make an enormous impact on our ability to provide emergency relief to disaster victims in our region and around the country.”
So when can you volunteer?
Volunteer shifts will run:
10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20
10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21
Volunteers (ages 8 and up) can sign up at http://disasterkitbuild.eventbrite.com for two-hour shifts. Walk-ins volunteers also can come.
The event should be fun! LVS will provide volunteers with free refreshments and ongoing raffles for hotel, restaurant and shopping prizes. So how great is that!
“With the substantial partnership of Las Vegas Sands, Clean the World will have our largest build ever and the potential to impact so many people in their time of critical need,” said Shawn Seipler, founder and executive director of Clean the World. “The power of our work to drive the global hygiene revolution is amplified by bringing together the generous support of Las Vegas Sands, the tremendous impact of the America Red Cross in disaster relief situations and the amazing volunteer manpower of the Las Vegas community.”
As a local Las Vegas business owner and mom who really cares about our community I’d like to thank personally thank Clean The World and The Las Vegas Sands Corp for serving such a great cause.
