The Nevada Mining Association kicked off its sixth annual Hope for Heat campaign on Memorial Day, May 31.

The campaign runs until Labor Day, September 6; every day temperatures reach 90 degrees in Reno and Elko, respectively, $90 will be donated to the nonprofit Eddy House in Reno and the Boys & Girls Club of Elko, according to an NVMA press release.

Eddy House provides homeless and at-risk youth with access to essential basic resources in a safe and secure location, as well as training to develop the skills needed for lasting independence. The Boys and Girls Club of Elko offers programs to keep young people on track to graduate, empowering them to plan for a future as healthy, productive and responsible residents.

Meanwhile, in Southern Nevada, NVMA will donate $100 to After-School All-Stars Las Vegas each day the temperature hits 100 degrees.

“Needless to say, we’re aiming for a scorching summer across the Silver State,” NVMA Chairman Tire Gray said in a statement. “Every day the mercury rises, some of the most amazing and compassionate nonprofits in our state will benefit. They provide vital tools and programs to young people in Nevada, which ultimately enables them to succeed in everyday life, in school and in the future.

From 2016 to 2020, Hope for Heat donated $52,500 to Nevada nonprofits, according to NVMA.
