LAS VEGAS, April 6, 2020 /CSRWire/ - Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) today announced it will donate two million medical masks and 20,000 protective suits to help health-care professionals, first responders and nonprofit organizations in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
With support from Las Vegas Sands as the founding corporate partner for the Movement to End Youth Homelessness in Southern Nevada, Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) continues to make significant strides in spearheading the community effort to deliver on the core strategies outlined in the region’s first-ever definitive plan to address the high rates of youth homelessness that have put the Greater Las Vegas area among the top in the nation.
The Nevada Homeless Alliance (NHA) organizes Project Homeless Connect, a series of service events bringing providers together in a single place to help those in need in the local Las Vegas community. With the assistance of Sands Cares, recently honored as the NHA Sponsor of the Year, the organization is able to better deliver on its mission.
In Las Vegas, a new program is launching to help more women achieve leadership positions within the culinary and restaurant fields in the hospitality industry, with the support of Sands and other Las Vegas area partners. The Women’s Hospitality Initiative (WHI) seeks to accelerate both the career development and advancement of women working in the industry, through advocacy, networking events and more. Sands, through our charitable giving and community engagement program Sands Cares, is a founding funding sponsor.
Las Vegas Sands continues to be recognized for its exemplary efforts at sustainable operations. The company has again been recognized by CDP, the international nonprofit environmental disclosure platform, on both the Climate Change and Water A Lists. This is the company’s fifth year in a row to attain a leadership position for Climate Change and its second on the Water A List.
Three years after it first launched, the Sands Cares Accelerator celebrated its first graduating nonprofit organization Wednesday.
The Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation, a nonprofit that aims to help children in underserved communities get off the streets and into college, joined Las Vegas Sands Corp.’s three-year mentorship program in 2017.
At the end of 2019, Sands will celebrate the first Sands Cares Accelerator graduate, when the Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation (ICF) closes out its three-year membership in the program.
Through the Accelerator, Sands creates a deeper and longer-term engagement with nonprofit organizations the company believes have the potential to fast-track capabilities to greater impact on our community. The company dedicates substantial resources to enable members to accelerate their ability to deliver on their mission.
Company retains CDP A List position for fifth consecutive year
LAS VEGAS, January 21, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Las Vegas Sands has again been recognized by CDP, the international nonprofit environmental disclosure platform, on the Climate Change A List. This is the company’s fifth year in a row to attain a leadership position for Climate Change, a distinction shared by only 2% of disclosing companies.
Through Sands Cares, our charitable giving and community engagement program, we strive to provide numerous community volunteer opportunities for our Team Members throughout the year. Often, these are singular, one-day events, like planting a community garden or helping to build a home with Habitat for Humanity. We also sponsor events that span days—and sometimes months—filled with multiple, thematically connected opportunities.
Through Sands Cares, our global corporate giving program, we are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and do business. We rely on our Team Members and their individual, personal drives to help out, but we also foster key partnerships with community stakeholders to ensure our efforts have as much impact as possible.
