RENO, Nevada–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 31, 2022–
The Nevada Mining Association (NVMA) kicks off its seventh annual Hope for Heat campaign on Memorial Day, giving Nevadans a reason to “hope for the heat” literally until Labor Day.
Beginning Monday, May 30 (Remembrance Day) through Monday, September 5 (Labour Day), NVMA will donate $90 each day as temperatures hit 90 degrees in Reno and Elko. The heat will also be in Southern Nevada, with a $100 donation each day the Las Vegas heat hits 100 degrees. In honor of its “100 Days of Giving” campaign commemorating 100 years in business, Granite Construction will donate an additional $33 per region each time the temperature milestones are met.
At the end of the campaign, proceeds will be split equally between boys’ and girls’ clubs in Truckee Meadows, Elko, Winnemucca and Southern Nevada.
Boys and Girls Clubs provide a safe, welcoming and positive environment for young people to participate in life-changing programs that focus on achievement, leadership and healthy lifestyles. Funds raised will support Boys and Girls Club programs and the more than 14,000 children the four affiliates serve.
“Nevada is known for its hot, dry summers and we’re counting on our Silver State to deliver scorching temperatures again this year,” said NVMA President Tire Gray. “Every day Mother Nature turns up the heat, Boys and Girls Clubs across the state and the children they serve will benefit, helping to set everyone up for success and a bright future.”
Since 2016, NVMA has donated $73,160 to Nevada nonprofits through the Hope for Heat program. For more information about NVMA and its work, visit www.nevadamining.org.
