Grand Vegas Tours to Partner with Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth in Commemoration of World Kindness Day on Tuesday, November 13
Las Vegas-based Luxury Tour Company to Donate Percentage of Guest Ticket Purchases in Support of Youth Survival Needs
LAS VEGAS – Grand Vegas Tours, the premier Las Vegas-based luxury tour company, is excited to announce its partnership with Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth(NPHY)in commemoration of World Kindness Day – Tues., Nov. 13. Starting today as a means to help support a framework of positive role models and encourage young adults to build a path to self-sufficiency, Grand Vegas Tours will donate a percentage of its guest ticket purchases to the youth service provider on an ongoing basis.
After a recent tour of the youth needs facility, CEO and Founder of Grand Vegas Tours, Anthony Dobbs felt compelled to get involved with NPHY’s mission to help eliminate homelessness among Nevada’s youth by contributing through his company’s ticketing resources. “I was completely blown away that the state of Nevada had the highest rate in the U.S. of unaccompanied homeless children and youth living on our streets unsheltered,” he said. “As a local and family-owned business owner and parent, I knew I had to get involved immediately, and I hope that through a percentage of our sales, we can make a difference in these youth’s lives.”
NPHY offers a wide-range of services crafted to meet homeless youths’ needs. Its programs include outreach, mobile crisis intervention, a drop-in center, emergency shelter, family reunification services, and housing programs for unaccompanied homeless youth ages 12-21 years old.
