The holiday season presents some of the best opportunities of the year to give back to the communities that you love, support those in need, and do your part to make the holidays a special time for all. Throughout the Las Vegas area, you'll find a wide variety of charitable organizations seeking donations, volunteers, and support during the holidays. Whether you're still shopping for Las Vegas homes for sale or you already live in a local community, now is the perfect time to show your charitable side. Our real estate agents have the details on four organizations accepting donations, volunteers, and support in Las Vegas during the holiday season.
- Marine Toys for Tots Program – Drop-off Locations in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV
Looking to help make a family in need smile this holiday season? The Marine Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys, and distributes them to families in need for the holidays. Donating a toy is about so much more than providing a gift – it also gives hope and joy to the families who receive those gifts. Donating to the Toys for Tots program is easy: Just head to one of the many designated drop-off areas in the Henderson/Las Vegas area to give a new, unwrapped gift for a family in need.
- City Mission of Las Vegas – 3983 E. Desert Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121
The City Mission of Las Vegas works hard throughout the year to provide food, supplies, and support to the homeless and families in need. The holiday season is an especially busy time for the Mission, so the organization is seeking both volunteers and donations to support people in need in the Las Vegas area. You can get involved by donating food, volunteering to provide hot meals, participating in holiday outreach meals, or donating clothing/household supplies. Holiday outreach meals are especially important this time of year, because they provide a warm, welcoming holiday experience for people who may not have had the opportunity to enjoy the season.
- The Salvation Army Southern Nevada – 2900 Palomino Lane, Las Vegas, NV 89107
The Salvation Army has been supporting charitable causes for well over a century, and their familiar red kettles are a common sight around Las Vegas during the holiday season. Stop by a red kettle to make a donation outside of many popular Las Vegas destinations, or take things a step further and volunteer your help for a good cause. In addition to collecting donations for the holidays, the Salvation Army is working hard to provide relief for those affected by the California Wildfires, so your support could make a big difference.
- A.A.O.K. Las Vegas – Designated Drop-off Areas in Las Vegas
Short for "Amazing Acts of Kindness," A.A.O.K. Las Vegas aims to create a special holiday experience by collecting gifts for families in need. A.A.O.K. works with local organizations like schools, non-profits, churches, and hospitals to find families in need. Donors then "sponsor" families by shopping for holiday gifts, which are delivered to the families for Christmas. A.A.O.K. has been facilitating these acts of kindness since 2012, and the organization continues to grow every year in the Las Vegas area.
The community togetherness that drives these charitable efforts is an important part of life throughout the year in Las Vegas, and a big reason why so many love to call the region home. Contact us at Wardley Real Estate to buy, sell, and learn about homes in the Las Vegas, NV area.
