Congratulations to HELP of Southern Nevada on winning a $1500 donation from Dee for Dentist for Q1 2015. It was a neck and neck battle with Street Teens til the end, but HELP of Southern Nevada pulled away in the final hours with a whopping 305 votes. A total count of 695 votes gives this contest the highest participation for any Fills Good we’ve run to date. As per their entry, here is what the HELP of Southern Nevada plans to do with the donation.
This money would be used to help fund our Shannon West Homeless Youth Center. In the last 12 months at Shannon West, we’ve assisted 264 homeless youth by providing them a bed to sleep in, food to eat, and clothing to wear. Through programming, supportive services, counseling, and advocacy, we supply these youth with the tools and skills they need to obtain self-sufficiency.
It caught us off guard to find out just how many organizations there are focused on helping the homeless in Southern Nevada. Below are the final vote tallies.
