February 2022 Giving Project

February 2022 Giving Project

Our Lerner and Rowe team attended the monthly Giving Project on February 12, 2022. During the community outreach event, we helped barbecue hot dogs for 250 hungry guests. 

The Giving Project occurs every second Saturday and was launched by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to ensure that our local homeless population receives regular access to social services,  as well as personal care items such as glasses, clothing, blankets, and more. 

Giving Back Since 2019 

One of the first Giving Projects our team had the pleasure to take part in was back in March 2019. Since then, we look forward to attending these events that allow us to bring smiles and hope to those who may need a helping hand 


Supporters of The BIG Search 2022 in Las Vegas

Lerner & Rowe Gives Back Donates $5K to Help Search for Missing Youth

The Big Search Las Vegas

Our Las Vegas outreach team joins F.R.E.E. International, KlassKIDS, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and other organizations and volunteers for Nevada Child Seekers’ annual The BIG Search in Las Vegas. As with previous years, The BIG Search 2022 in Las Vegas occurs over SuperBowl weekend. 

We are honored for the opportunity to participate in The BIG Search and offer a $5,000 gift that will be used to cover the costs of the three-day search and rescue event.

What Is The BIG Search?

The BIG Search is just that–a major search effort spread across the Las Vegas Valley as a means to help locate Nevada Child Seekers’ “Top 30” missing local youth. During the search, volunteers hit the streets in a grassroots effort to distribute booklets and baseball cards to locals and tourists that feature photos and other identifiable details of the missing youth. 

These distribution efforts have proven to be optimal in helping to locate and assist missing and exploited youth in the Las Vegas area–not only those on the “Top 30” list. The information also helps to increase awareness of the local programs and organizations available to assist youth that may be in danger of exploitation and sex trafficking.   

Statistics of Missing Youth in Southern Nevada 

According to statistics provided by Nevada’s Missing Children Clearinghouse, over 8,000 children are reported missing each year in Nevada. Approximately 200 are considered endangered or abducted. 

How You Can Help

Contact Nevada Child Seekers directly to learn more about how the agency assists families and law enforcement locate missing children in Las Vegas and across the country. Call 702-458-7009, email [email protected], or visit NevadaChildSeekers.org.

Each valentine will also include a $5.00 gift card to a local food establishment.

The Story Behind Project Valentine

Project Valentine started in 2021 as a means to help combat an increase of pain and isolation felt by youth in foster care during COVID-19 lockdowns. This project shows one of Nevada’s most vulnerable populations that someone does care and is thinking of them this Valentine’s Day by sending them a message of love and hope. 

Join us in showing these youth that they are valued and not forgotten by donating your own valentine(s) now online, or by texting ProjValentine to 41444. (Message and data rates may apply). Each $7 donation covers printing and mailing of the gift and Valentine’s cards.
