One of Nevada State Bank’s Core Values is Community, and bank management encourages all its colleagues to take an active part in bettering the lives of their fellow Nevadans in the cities and towns where they live and work. As an organization, the Bank also assists local non-profit groups through donations and volunteers. The holiday season brings many opportunities to share in the spirit of giving and to help Nevada communities. Here are just a few of the recent activities in which Nevada State Bank has participated:
In southern Nevada, the Bank sponsored a food drive to benefit the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, which provides meals, shelters, and recovery programs to people in need. The organization serves approximately 30,000 meals a month at its downtown location. Just in time for the holidays, Nevada State Bank donated several barrels of non-perishable food contributed by bank colleagues, clients, and the community. Craig Kirkland, executive vice president and director of retail banking, serves on the Rescue Mission board of directors. Bank colleagues also volunteer their time to serve meals at the Rescue Mission dining hall throughout the year.
The Bank’s team of more than 100 colleagues recently raised over $11,000 for the American Heart Association in the 2016 Heart & Stroke Walk, raising the second-highest dollar total among Las Vegas teams. Since 2007, the Bank has raised more than $137,000 to benefit AHA’s efforts to combat heart disease, the number one killer of Americans.
In Northern Nevada, colleagues are collecting clothing and cash donations until the end of the year to benefit children through the Reno Rodeo Foundation Denim Drive. Collection bins are located in Bank branches throughout northern and rural Nevada, where clients and other concerned citizens can donate new denim clothing, socks and underwear for local organizations serving abused and neglected children. Clients can also “Donate a Dollar for Denim” at any branch, and those funds are used to purchase additional new clothing items for children throughout the year. Last year, the Bank collected nearly $7,800 in the Denim Drive.
As a sponsor of the 18th annual 98.5 KLUC Toy Drive, Nevada State Bank is collecting new, unwrapped children’s toys and bikes through December 7 to support the CBS radio station’s efforts. Toys dropped off at any Nevada State Bank branch location in the Las Vegas Valley will be delivered to KLUC’s Chet Buchanan & the Morning Zoo to benefit local organizations and help brighten the lives of children during the holidays.
Nevada State Bank’s CEO, Dallas Haun, serves on the board of Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank, which provides food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties. Working through a service network of approximately 1,300 community partners, it distributed more than 38 million pounds of food in 2015, the equivalent of more than 31 million meals. Bank colleagues regularly volunteer at Three Square, helping with tasks such as filling backpacks with food for school children, packing box lunches, and bagging produce for distribution by partner agencies.
Nevada State Bank also provides financial support to Communities In Schools (CIS) of Northeastern Nevada to help Elko County school children remain healthy and engaged in school. This November, Nevada State Bank donated $18,000 to CIS of Nevada for the 2016-2017 school year.
These are just a few examples showing the Bank’s commitment to its Core Value of Community. Nevada State Bank has been supporting non-profit groups throughout Nevada since its founding in 1959, and will continue its efforts to assist our communities going forward.
