In lieu of holiday gifts to our most valued customers this year, our Nevada Division has made charitable donations to several local organizations including Serving Our Kids, Project 150, and the Children’s Heart Foundation.
Established in 2012, Serving Our Kids Foundation has made it their mission to provide weekend meals to children in Southern Nevada that would otherwise go hungry. According to Serving Our Kids, approximately 128,000 children in the Clark County School District meet the federal income-eligible definition of food insecure meaning. With all governmental and nonprofit resources currently being deployed, only 15% of these kids receive weekend food bags. Serving Our Kids strives to fill the gap, providing meals for 3,500 kids in 70 schools that do not currently receive any food bags on the weekend. In addition to holding multiple food drives for the organization in 2020, Sunland has donated $4,000 to the organization to support its mission of feeding and serving the needs of Clark County children.

Project 150 is a local organization that provides support and services to homeless high school students in Southern Nevada. This organization provides food, hygiene items, clothing and school supplies to disadvantaged teens in need so they can remain in school, graduate and build a bright future. In addition to supplies, Project 150 offers free access to programs including life skills and educational workshops, and works with local organizations to provide additional resources for students in search of counseling, health services, housing, employment and scholarship programs for higher education. This holiday season, Sunland has donated $4,000 to Project 150 to help meet the needs of thousands of teens. For more information, visit www.project150.org.
Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2001 in Las Vegas, Nevada through the compassionate efforts of local pediatric cardiologists and concerned families of children with heart conditions. According to the Children’s Heart Foundation, twice as many children die from congenital heart disease in the United States each year as die from all forms of childhood cancers combined. The CHF is committed to making a difference in the lives of heart families through emotional, educational and financial support to inspire a higher quality of life for all. Sunland has donated $500 to support programs such as Adopt-a Heart, Camp Mend-a-Heart and community education initiatives for healthcare professionals and the general public on pediatric cardiology issues.
