Hope Means Nevada (HMN), the community-based non-profit focused on eliminating youth suicide in the state, announces “Hope in Action,” a community volunteer action and mental wellness event recognizing Make A Difference Day. Event sponsor Subaru of Las Vegas will host this year’s event, which coincides with their Subaru Loves Pet Halloween Hounds event featuring five local animal shelters on-site with dogs available for adoption.
The event recognizes the fact that doing good for others is an effective way to boost mood and improve overall mental wellness. As the only non-profit in Nevada dedicated solely to the intervention and prevention of teen suicide by leveraging the power of communication and peer-to-peer connection, HMN invites teens as well as their friends and families to join in this group volunteer event benefiting an array of community charitable organizations. In addition to painting Hope Rocks with uplifting messages of hope to distribute throughout the community and making and exchanging friendship bracelets, participants will perform service projects for local nonprofits.
In addition, a variety of community mental health organizations will be on hand with booths offering information related to the services they offer. Attendees will be encouraged to explore these available resources during the event.
