On behalf of all our colleagues at Nevada State Bank, our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and families hurt by the senseless tragedy on the Las Vegas Strip last weekend. I’d also like to express our thanks to the brave first responders for their quick actions and heroic efforts, and to all those healthcare workers, police officers, and volunteers who helped the victims.
As we gradually recover from this shocking event, it’s been gratifying to see the community coming together to provide assistance, whether it’s donating money, giving blood, bringing food and supplies to emergency centers, or offering their homes to victims’ families.
Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak reached out to Nevada State Bank for assistance to host a donation account for those wishing to contribute money to help the victims and their families. At any of our branches throughout the state, just tell the branch colleagues that you want to donate to the Las Vegas Victims Fund. Individuals and businesses from Nevada and around the country have already donated more than $8 million through an online fund set up by Commissioner Sisolak, and we’re happy to do what we can to help in the fundraising effort.
Despite the fact that many southern Nevadans are transplants from other parts of the country, it has become very evident to me that we really are a community, and it’s encouraging to see that we can all pull together in response to a crisis and do whatever we can to help those people who are hurting and in need of assistance.
I’m especially proud this week to call myself a Nevadan. Now is the time to count our blessings, let friends and family members know how much we appreciate them, and recognize that we live in a great community and a great state.
