How Can I Help?

Many non-profits and service providers in Nevada are working hard to get resources to those in the community who need them the most. Many of these organizations are in need of financial donations, volunteers, and other supplies, and for those who are in a position to give, it can often be difficult to know exactly what organizations are in need and what those needs are.

 

If you would like to support the work we are doing here at the Tuck and Run Foundation so that we can keep this resource guide and our youth resource mobile application running, you can do so here.

The following organizations have put out specific requests, identifying what they need to best help Nevadans going forward:

Opportunity Village: Las Vegas

Opportunity Village is a Las Vegas based non-profit dedicated to helping adults with disabilities. The organization runs multiple programs, including PRIDE, which provides 24-hour care to individuals with profound physical and intellectual disabilities, and an employment resource center to train clients in job skills.

Currently, Opportunity Village is still providing in-home services to vulnerable clients and is expanding its online programs to provide activities such as dance classes and jam sessions that clients can participate in virtually.

The organization’s two biggest needs are:

  • Monetary donations

  • Items for the Thrift Store

Monetary donations can be made online.

The Opportunity Village Thrift Store, located at 390 S. Decatur Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89107, is encouraging anyone doing their spring cleaning while staying at home to donate items. Donations can be made on site, and any questions can be answered
at (702) 383-5911.

United Way of Southern Nevada partners with 700 companies and non-profit organizations in the region to combine efforts and assist the community in the most effective possible way. Currently, the organization is operating the Delivering with Dignity program which delivers meals to qualifying low-income, vulnerable households.

The organization currently has two major needs.

Donations

UWSN is taking donations to their Emergency Assistance and Community Needs Fund to assist those impacted by COVID-19. Community members can donate online.

Volunteers

UWSN is looking for volunteer drivers for their Delivering with Dignity program. Volunteers should be currently employed or on laid-off status, have a valid NV drivers license and auto insurance, and not be a member of a high-risk community as defined by the CDC. Volunteers will be screened in order to guarantee the safety of the vulnerable populations they serve.

UWSN is asking that those wishing to volunteer DO NOT CALL but rather get in touch through the website or over email at COVID19@uwsn.org

In the era of COVID-19, social distancing is targeting our most vulnerable population our seniors. With an unequal proportion of ICU emergencies occurring within the senior population, many are choosing to self-isolate. This can lead to depression, fear, and hopelessness. Let’s band together and help our seniors.

S.A.F.E. House is a non-profit centered around helping victims of domestic violence. They operate a crisis hotline and emergency shelter in Southern Nevada as well as counseling, advocacy, and support group services.

The organization currently has to limit acceptance of donations to eliminate “walk-in” traffic. Only the following donations are currently being accepted:

  • Cash donations

  • Cleaning supplies

  • Personal Protective Equipment

  • Non-perishable items such as canned food, toilet paper, etc.

The organization’s annual fundraiser was cancelled, further straining the budget. Financial donations can be made online or through the mail.

The organization is requesting community members make an appointment before dropping off items by calling (702) 451-4203.
