Summer is finally arriving in the desert. As temperatures climb towards the century mark, one local organization is hoping Mother Nature will bring the heat. This summer, Dollar Loan Center hosts its second annual Heat Is On campaign with Fox 5 Vegas to provide $100 for every day the official Las Vegas temperature reaches at least 100 degrees.
“This is the second year we have hosted the Heat Is On campaign and really enjoy it”, said Dollar Loan Center CEO Charles Brennan. ”It makes it a little easier to see so many ones and zeros in the forecast every week when you know a very deserving organization will benefit from it.”
Opportunity Village is Nevada’s largest not-for-profit organization serving citizens with intellectual disabilities. It provides job training, employment and other very important programs and services that enable our neighbors to live productive, engaged lives.
“Dollar Loan Center has once again stepped up to the plate helping us raise desperately needed dollars to expand our programs and services for people with disabilities”, said Linda Smith, chief development officer and foundation associate executive director for Opportunity Village. “Last year Dollar Loan Center raised $15,000. We hope this summer we’ll break that record! We truly appreciate their efforts to help these important members of our community.”
“Opportunity Village is one of our favorite charities and does great work in Southern Nevada”, said Brennan. “It is a pleasure to help organizations like Opportunity Village that care so much about their clients and our community.”
Brennan is a well-known philanthropist in addition to serving as CEO of DLC Empire.
Brennan’s giving in Las Vegas has included the Henderson Little League, which was able to resume operations for the 2011 season with a $10,000 donation from Brennan. More than 600 children participate in Henderson Little League, the city’s largest baseball organization. Brennan also hosted a food and donation drive to benefit Three Square in December. Three Square is a non-profit food bank that distributes food through a network of more than 300 non-profit agencies and faith-based organizations in Southern Nevada.
