New Home Resource Las Vegas Charities

Charities – Our Ways of Giving Back to Southern Nevada

Getting involved. With people. With the community. Doing the things we can to make a difference in the lives of those around us. It’s something that’s high on our list of priorities for everyone at New Home Resource.

Perhaps it’s that nature that led us into the real estate business to begin with, as buying or selling a home is a very personal thing – and being able to help people through that transition is one of our favorite parts of the job.

Throughout the year, our staff is proud to take part in volunteering our time and efforts to a number of local charities here in Southern Nevada. In fact, it’s so important to us that on many occasions – if our entire staff chooses to participate in an event – we’ll even close down the office (with salaries paid, of course! And our apologies in advance if we’re a little slow in responding to your call on those days).

In addition to our involvement with local charities such as Three Square Food Bank and a number of Las Vegas animal rescue organizations, New Home Resource broker, Joanna Piette, is also the founding President of Breakaway Cycling Inc. – a Las Vegas-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization that teaches bicycle safety and donates bicycles to underprivileged children. Breakaway also coordinates with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), as well as partnering with the Clark County School District (CCSD) in the “Safe Routes to School” program.

Making a positive difference in our community matters to us – so we do what we can to make it happen. Maybe it’s just a New Home Resource-thing. 😉

Charities - Pedal4Pooches

The 3rd Annual Pedal4Pooches. Every rider brought a donation for local animal shelters – the NSPCA and Heaven Can Wait. Created to benefit local animal rescue organizations, this is the third year Barry and Karen Lasko are hosting this family-friendly bike ride event to raise awareness, funds, and gather much-needed items for those pets who don’t yet have their “forever home.” October 2016

We also partner with Walmart® to repair bicycles that have been damaged in transit and cannot be sold. We repair the bicycles and donate them to those children in need.
