GOLO supports local charities in Nevada
GOLO recently provided $20,000 in donations to local organizations in Nevada, with $10,000 each to Three Square Food Bank and Special Olympics of Nevada. The funding will support various initiatives in the local community, including programs to combat childhood hunger and efforts to promote healthy lifestyles and healthcare for athletes with special needs.
"We're excited to continue our support for the critically important work of these two local organizations," said Jennifer Brooks, co-founder and president of GOLO.
Three Square Food Bank
Three Square is Southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger relief organization, serving Las Vegas and all of Clark, Lincoln, Esmeralda, and Nye counties. Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with businesses, nonprofit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the Clark County School District, governmental entities, the media, and thousands of volunteers working together to support food-insecure Southern Nevadans.
"With one in seven Southern Nevadans struggling to put a meal on the table, Three Square relies on community partnerships such as GOLO to continue distributing food to families and individuals in need,” said Michelle Beck, Chief Development Officer at Three Square Food Bank. “Their generous gift will create an additional 30,000 meals for our hungry neighbors, bringing us one step closer to a hunger-free community. On behalf of the hundreds of thousands of individuals we are privileged to serve, we are deeply grateful for GOLO and their tremendous commitment to ending hunger.”
Special Olympics Nevada
Special Olympics Nevada offers a wide variety of services to their athletes. Their sports training and competition opportunities provide athletes of all ability levels the chance to play and be part of a team. Skills like being a good teammate, winning with grace, and encouraging others are all skills that carry over into their everyday lives.
"We are thankful to receive another generous donation from GOLO, which will allow us to continue to offer free preventative screenings and services to our athletes, a population that is at a higher risk for health problems yet is often denied or lacks access to care," said Terrence Thornton, executive director of Special Olympics Nevada.
