Sands Co-Workers Recognize Each Other for Unwavering Commitment to Community Service
LAS VEGAS, July 23, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) today announced the recipients of the Mr. Sheldon G. And Dr. Miriam Adelson Citizenship Awards, presented by Sands Cares. The award recognizes Team Members across all the company’s business regions who have demonstrated a dedication to giving back to local communities and important causes.
Sands is committed to helping end youth homelessness in the United States, through support for a number of organizations and initiatives that are addressing the issue. In our corporate headquarters of Las Vegas, more than 1,000 young people experience homelessness annually, representative of a national crisis that has been greatly amplified by the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Helping vulnerable youth find solutions and services is more important than ever before.
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.
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.
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.
Working in unison with our stakeholders, we believe that Las Vegas Sands can make a meaningful difference to the quality of our environment, multiplying our positive impacts both now and into the future. Through Sands ECO360, we are on a sustainability journey, and we want our more than 50,000 Team Members to be a part of it. In pursuit of that journey, we’ve set a goal of performing one million Sands ECO360 actions—positive, measurable environmental improvements—by the end of 2020. With more than 900,000 ECO360 actions taken so far, we’re well on our way to achieving our goal.
Las Vegas Sands is committed to the fight against youth homelessness in our corporate headquarters and throughout the country by fostering relationships with local and national nonprofits, such as Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY), HELP of Southern Nevada’s Shannon West Homeless Youth Center and now the Lost in America Foundation. With the soon-to-be-released documentary film, Lost in America, director Rotimi Rainwater has created a movement to cast a wide lens on the issue of youth homelessness in America through the power of mainstream media.
