National Police Week

National Police Week 2019

LRGB Water Bottle Donation 2019President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation in 1962 which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day. From that point forward, the week in which that date falls was named National Police Week.

As such, the Police Wives of Southern Nevada (PWOSN) seek donations from local organizations and businesses to be handed out to the 6,500 law enforcement officers of Southern Nevada during this week. PWOSN does this as a means to show appreciation of the law enforcement officers who take an active role in protecting communities on a daily basis.

For the second year in a row, we’ve stepped up to support PWOSN’s efforts by donating water bottles, time, and other resources throughout this week of gratitude.

A Day of Fellowship, A Week of Goodwill

Water Bottle Assemble - National Police Week In preparation for National Police Week Guy Williams, our community outreach coordinator, joined with PWOSN on multiple days to help assemble a portion of the 6,500 bottles our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back foundation donated to the group.

The portion of water bottles Guy helped assemble were passed out to every police officer of the South Central Area Command, the Bolden Area Command, and the North Las Vegas Area Command.

“The Police Wives of Southern Nevada play an integral role in supporting the police officers, their spouses, and families. It is an honor for Lerner and Rowe Gives Back to support our Southern Nevada police officers and their wives for the second year in a row,” shared attorney Glen Lerner.

Wrap-Up at Community Cookout

Community Cookout - National Police Week 2019To wrap up National Police Week, our Gives Back team supplied water for a community cookout hosted by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD).

The community cookout took place at Doolittle Park as a means to show support of the many neighbors who live in this area of town.

The water we supplied was used to help ensure the hundreds of children and families in attendance remained hydrated while enjoying the planned festivities.

During the afternoon of food and fun, children and their families were all smiles as they enjoyed the nice weather, face painting, grilled hot dogs and burgers, disc jockey, and taking tours of a pink and white Metro cruiser.

Moreover, we were grateful to make new friends with other community-minded organizations and individuals; and were especially blessed to meet with Pastor Matthew Teis of Liberty Baptist Church and the staff and students from Cornerstone Church.

Both community churches are doing a fabulous job with the neighborhood youth providing everything from ice hockey camps to bible studies.

Glen Lerner recapped on the week-long events by sharing, “We are honored to support LVMPD in their community engagement activities such as the community cookout that took place at Doolittle Part.”

“Over the past three years of working with local law enforcement officers, we have witnessed a reduction in violent crime. We believe these positive results are a reflection of LVMPD’s efforts to invest in reaching out to the most disadvantaged and hardest hit Las Vegas neighborhoods. Further, we were honored to give back and support this community cookout. It was a perfect ending to our week-long celebration of National Police Week!”

Campfires & Marshmallows Gala Sponsor

Sponsor | Southwest Kids Cancer FoundationFor the third year in a row, our Gives Back team joins other community partners in supporting the Southwest Kids Cancer Foundation by sponsoring one of their festive themed fundraisers. For 2019, we signed on to be a $2,500 camp counselor sponsor. Monetary proceeds raised from the Campfires and Marshmallows Gala, such as our sponsored donation, will directly benefit Arizona Camp Sunrise and the Sidekicks program.

In case you didn’t know: Arizona Camp Sunrise is a fun and safe place for children affected by cancer to unwind and have fun. In turn, the Sidekicks program is a one-of-a-kind experience for siblings of cancer patients that is offered at Arizona Camp Sunrise.

#LovePup It’s Hip to Chip Sponsors

Hip to Chip 2019 SponsorLerner and Rowe Gives Back is very excited to be part of the one year anniversary of the #LovePup It’s Hip to Chip microchipping initiative. This is #LovePup’s biggest program yet, and we’re so pleased to be a part of it for another year.

One Year Anniversary Details

Join us in celebrating the success of the It’s Hip to Chip program and meet some of the microchipped dogs that have been adopted out to furever homes over the past year.

Event highlights include dog food and treats handed out by Safeway/Albertsons for the four-legged guests, tasty offerings from food trucks for the two-legged guests, and educational information explaining the importance of microchipping. AZ Pet Vet will also be microchipping all dogs that come without microchips.

Details to save:

DATE: Saturday, May 11, 2019
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to noon
LOCATION: Maricopa County Animal Care and Control West (2500 S. 27th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85009)

Why It’s Hip to Chip

The It’s Hip to Chip Program aims to ensure that all dogs adopted from either of the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Animal Shelters locations receive a microchip upon their adoption. Microchips make it easier for owners to find their lost pets.

By storing the owner’s contact information in a database, a microchip takes the guesswork out of trying to find a runaway pup. And, since the microchip is implanted under the dog’s skin, there’s no need to worry about losing the device like a collar or tag.

The People Who Love Pups

Radio host Johnjay Van Es and his family have been fostering stray dogs for adoption in their home for years. The entire family shares a passion for helping animals and preparing them for their future forever home. Since the creation of #LovePup, the family has rescued, fostered, and found homes for over 500 dogs. Van Es uses the power of social media to screen interested owners and match the dogs with the perfect home.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back would like to encourage you to adopt your next family friend instead of buying. Check out the #LovePup Foundation for an array of furry companions waiting for their forever home.

2019 JDRF One Walk & Rock and Run Sponsor

Logan’s Diabetes Defeaters

As with most of the organizations our team chooses to support, there was a personal component behind why we got involved with two Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDFR) events this past weekend at Sloan Park in Mesa, Arizona.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back was pleased to donate in the name of team Logan’s Diabetes Defeaters at both the JDRF One Walk and JDRF Rock N Run. Logan is the son of a friend and neighbor of our team member Melanie Stowers. He is 9 years old and was diagnosed 2 ½ years ago.

Amazing Turnouts

There were about 14,000 people in attendance at the morning JDRF One Walk. Our founder Kevin Rowe joined in the fun and enjoyed meeting team namesake, Logan.

Later that evening we returned for the JDRF Rock N Run. Our night crew was among an approximate 450 supporters putting tennis shoes to pavement to help fight juvenile disabilities.

Proceeds raised from the JDRF One Walk and JDRF Rock N Run will be used to fund scientific research to better treat, prevent, and ultimately cure type 1 diabetes.
