Our Sands Cares corporate citizenship program was recently highlighted in a Hotel Business Magazine article for donating $100,000 to five local nonprofit organizations in the Las Vegas area. The donations were part of the Sands Give-Back Bank, where Team Members from The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo determined which five charities they wanted to receive the donations.

“Team members here are deeply connected to the Las Vegas community. Through our program, we try to focus on volunteerism and in-kind monetary donations. The Sands Give-Back Bank is a set of funds set aside and a majority vote by employees determines which causes are supported. There are survey gatherings to gauge interest and, from there, we choose organizations that align with those causes and team members’ interests,” said Stephanie Stanton, director of operations, Sands Cares.

Over 8,500 of our Las Vegas employees voted to distribute the funds to HELP of Southern NevadaCommunities in Schools of NevadaThe Shade TreeThree Square and U.S. Vets.
