Did you know that August 17th is designated as National Non-Profit Day? FUNDrive describes the day as one “to recognize the immense effort non-profits and charities put into making an impact in their communities and across the globe.” In honor of this recognition, Allegiant Electric wanted to highlight several local non-profit organizations we have supported in the past and share their missions:
The Courtyard Homeless Resource Center
Launched in 2017, the Courtyard Homeless Resource Center is an innovative public-private partnership. It convenes a range of service providers in a central, convenient location to provide homeless clients access to housing, medical and mental health services, and much more. Allegiant Electric and our employees recently donate over $800 worth of bottled water to this resource center this week. Learn more.
Eye Care 4 Kids
This children’s charity provides professional eye care to low-income, visually-impaired children and underserved families. Eye Care 4 Kids has helped more than 300,000 children receive professional eye exams, vision screenings, and glasses. Allegiant Electric has partnered with the Las Vegas chapter by offering pro-bono electric work. Learn more.
Lutheran Social Services of Nevada
Our COO Andrea Vigil sits on the board of this organization, which serves and cares for people in need. Since 1996, over 440,000 individuals have been cared for by LSSN, with services including an online food pantry, mobile food distribution events, nutrition education classes and live cooking demonstrations, the Heart of the City Senior Meal Program and senior supportive services, mainstream benefits applications, and other safety-net services. Learn more—including about the LSSN’s upcoming anniversary gala event.
Allegiant Electric is also proud to support the work of the Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s annual Toys for Tots, and Project 150. We are pleased to have the excuse of National Non-Profit Day to shine a spotlight on these fantastic community organizations who strive to help members of the community we all call home.
