CHALLENGE #46-2021

Safe Nest

Las Vegas, Nevada 

Safe Nest was opened in 1978 with 12 beds.  Today, they are the largest with over 70 beds - and most comprehensive domestic violence program in Nevada.  All shelters rely heavily on donations from the public to maintain their level of service especially today with budget restraints.  If you live in the Las Vegas area, you have likely seen their purple and white donation bins.  they have been placed throughout the Las Vegas Valley area.  They are emptied on a regular and have proven to be a very effective method to increase donations. 

We would like to send the following to Safe Nest.
