Long-Term, Multi-Faceted Partnership with NPHY Includes More Than $1.7 Million in Cumulative Sands Cares Funding to Address Southern Nevada’s High Youth Homelessness Rate
LAS VEGAS, July 19, 2021 /3BL Media/ – Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) today announced continuation of its multi-year partnership with Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) with a donation of $300,000 to aid Southern Nevada’s most vulnerable youth.
Sands is dedicated not only to providing industry-leading experiences for our guests, but to ensure our company’s environmental footprint has minimal impact on the environment – efforts we proudly undertake. Through Sands ECO360, our global sustainability program, we continuously investigate and implement strategies to protect the planet we all share.
As part of our continuing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), Sands is partnering with The LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada, contributing over $150,000 through Sands Cares to close out phase one of the organization’s campaign to expand the Arlene Cooper Community Health Center in Downtown Las Vegas.
The InspirED Global Fellowship, from our partner Nevada Succeeds, is in the midst of their important work to develop innovative policies and strategies to support student success in Nevada. A central theme of the work of Design Team I—the first cadre of InspirED Fellows—is the recommendation to develop and adopt a statewide Portrait of a Nevada Graduate, which would define a set of characteristics that students must possess for optimal preparedness after high school. Even as they round the home stretch for this first iteration, the Fellowship is already preparing for the future.
Continuing our company commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, Sands has announced a $75,000 donation to the Asian Community Development Council (ACDC) for establishment of a language bank and resource hotline to facilitate access to critical social services for the Filipino, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Thai communities in Southern Nevada. The donation, the largest to date in the Las Vegas community, will help ACDC kickstart the local funding campaign.
Keeping our communities strong means helping our neighbors stay safe and healthy. Through large-scale world events like the COVID-19 pandemic, we are able to leverage our resources to engage in focused relief efforts, such as contributing to organizations helping at the front lines, and donating life-saving supplies to our frontline workers. Our overall, long-term efforts are consistently geared toward protecting the most vulnerable in our communities.
As one of the largest hospitality companies in the world, we have a particular responsibility to ensure the communities in which we work and call home are great places for both our guests to visit and our Team Members and neighbors to live.
Often, improving our home communities means focusing primarily on the individual regions in which those efforts were developed, but with the InspirED Global Fellowship, developed with Nevada Succeeds, we leveraged a unique opportunity to unite our business regions in the United States and Asia, to learn from Singapore’s world-renowned education system to develop innovations for schools in the State of Nevada.
Sands Academy, our global development and mentorship program, operates under a unified global charter to support the career development goals of our Team Members worldwide, improving our business through building a stronger, more knowledgeable workforce. While united in our global mission, we tailor specific programming at each of our properties to best meet local business needs.
Acting under a unified global charter, Sands Academy, our global development and mentorship program, supports the career goals of our Team Members, while simultaneously improving our business operations through fostering stronger, more knowledgeable teams. Additionally, as we recognize the unique needs of our individual business regions, Sands Academy tailors its programs to the unique needs of our communities in the United States and Asia.
