Round Up with The Nevada Homeless Alliance
While April is National Cannabis Awareness month, we want to take a moment to reflect and continue to partner on all the good our community can do when we work together. Over the past few months we’ve helped fight hunger in Nevada, helped our local veterans, and helped adults in our community with intellectual and physical disabilities. When we work together, it’s incredible what we can accomplish and how much we can help improve our community’s lives. This month, we are partnering with the Nevada Homeless Alliance to help those battling the challenges of homelessness.
Here is the reality we face:
- 14,114 will experience homelessness this year in Southern NV alone
- There are 5,530 homeless individuals on any given night In Southern Nevada
- 22% are unaccompanied children or youth
- 45% are experiencing homelessness for the first time
The Source+ is proud of the community work we’ve done together with you. With your help through our round-up program, we’ve successfully raised thousands for local Nevada charities including over $4,500 for Candlelighters of Nevada in September of 2020, over $2,400 for Ink Ribbon Foundation in October of 2020, over $3,000 for Forgotten Not Gone in November of 2020, over $4,900 to Three Square in December of 2020, over $2,800 to Opportunity Village in January of 2021,and over $8,400 for the Last Prisoner Project in February of 2021. Your kind and thoughtful donations will help local Nevadans improve their quality of life. You should feel good knowing you’ve made a difference in our community. Thank you for contributing to these great causes.
The Source is partnering with the Nevada Homeless Alliance in April to help raise funds for their mission. The Nevada Homeless Alliance is dedicated to bringing people together to advance solutions to homelessness. They accomplish this by partnering closely with federal, state, and local government, business, philanthropic, civic, faith-based organizations, people who are currently experiencing homelessness and those who have in the past
The Nevada Homeless Alliance leads a variety of community initiatives focused on outreach, community-building, advocacy, and education, including Project Homeless Connect Events. Project Homeless Connect Events are mobile Pop-Up resource events that deliver same-day services such as housing, healthcare, hygiene, employment support, and much more to over 3,000 people experiencing homelessness each year.
Their vision is simple and powerful: “Our vision is that with increased collaboration, communication, and access to services, we will end homelessness.”
For the entire month of April, round your purchase to the nearest dollar and we’ll donate the difference to our partners at the Nevada Homeless alliance. You can also donate directly in-store via our donation jars.
