STATION CASINOS “MONTH OF HONOR” IN MAY TO BENEFIT VETERANS VILLAGE
Funds were raised through proceeds and gaming winnings of patriotic-themed offerings for Southern Nevada’s only 24/7 crisis intervention and housing facility for homeless veterans
During the month of May 2015 Station Casinos launched a month-long fundraising effort to raise awareness and funds for homeless veterans and their families who reside at Veterans Village located in Downtown Las Vegas. At a special dedication ceremony held at Veterans Village on June 30th proceeds raised throughout May during the Month of Honor campaign were presented to Veterans Village. A total of $58,176 dollars was raised to benefit Southern Nevada’s only 24/7 crisis intervention and housing facility that cares for our local homeless veterans and their families. In attendance at the ceremony were Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Ms. Lori Nelson, APR, Vice President, Corporate Communications, Station Casinos. Speakers at the ceremony included Mayor Goodman, Representative from the office of Senator Joe Heck, Senator Pat Spearman, Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager, Clark County School Board Trustee Kevin Child, and Michael McDonald, former Mayor Pro-Tem and Veterans Village Advisory Board Member.
In recognition of Station Casinos incredible support for our Veteran Heroes, Veterans Village has named their Crisis Intervention Center in honor of Station Casinos in honor of their commitment to our United States Veterans and the Las Vegas community.
The Veterans Village Crisis Intervention Center CIC is the only a 24/7/365 emergency triage center in Sothern Nevada. Services include client based triage, medical and mental health services, job referral and training, Three Square Regional Food Bank nutrition, clothing, job referrals and placements, bus and transportation services and a host of other services targeted at preventing the rapid slide to homelessness and acute poverty.
“We are honored to be a part of the Station Casinos’ Month of Honor which will assist Veterans Village to continue to provide housing and supportive services for our United States Veterans with honor and dignity,” said Veterans Village founder Dr. Arnold Stalk.
Station Casinos has always been a significant supporter of the military, most recently introducing its Military Monday and Operation Thank You initiatives to thank the military community with a variety of discount programs.
