FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HOPE MEANS NEVADA TO HOST “HOPE IN ACTION” EVENT DURING NATIONAL MAKE A DIFFERENCE WEEKEND, SUNDAY, OCT. 29
Event to Unite Community, Mental Health Advocates for Day of Volunteerism
On Sunday, Oct. 29, media are invited to attend Hope Means Nevada’s “Hope In Action” event. Taking place during National Make a Difference Weekend, the event aims to unite the community and mental health advocates for a meaningful day of volunteerism.
Hope Means Nevada’s goal is to spread kindness and the transformative power of hope by having volunteers at the event being tasked with creating thoughtfully curated care packages, hope-infused painted rocks, heartwarming friendship bracelets, self-care kits and more for worthy charitable organizations such as Shine a Light, Operation Homefront and Project DOT. Games, food-and-drink trucks and other activities will also be offered.
This event is made possible thanks to support from Subaru of Las Vegas, Vegas Golden Knights Foundation, NV Energy Foundation, Shear Family Foundation, Claggett & Sykes Law Firm, and Compassionate Las Vegas.
Tragically, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for Nevada’s teens*, which is why Hope Means Nevada’s efforts to spread messages bolstering youth mental health to end suicide are more crucial than ever. Joining together to engage in doing good for others is a proven way to improve mental health, which is why we have planned this weekend’s event for our area youth in recognition of Make A Difference Weekend.
