SUMMERLIN® PARTNERS WITH CLARK COUNTY COMMISSIONER WEEKLY

TO COLLECT DONATED TOYS FOR KIDS IN FOSTER CARE 

The Howard Hughes Corporation®, developer of the Summerlin® master-planned community, is once again participating in a special toy drive to brighten the holidays for children in Southern Nevada.  According to Tom Warden, Senior Vice President of Community & Government Relations for Summerlin, the community is accepting new, unwrapped toys at Downtown Summerlin® for the “Joys of Christmas,” the fifth annual toy drive organized by Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly for the children of the Department of Family Services who are currently in foster care. 

 

According to Warden, this is the fourth time the community has participated.  “Our community’s response to this effort is historically strong, and we expect this year to be no different,” said Warden.  “We are proud and honored to support Commissioner Weekly’s initiative to ensure that every child in Southern Nevada has a gift this holiday season. Most importantly, we invite everyone to join us.  It takes an entire community to make a difference for these kids.”

 

Toys must be unwrapped and dropped off by the end of day on December 14.  Toy drop-off locations include:

 

  • Downtown Summerlin Concierge - located in the breezeway of One Summerlin; 702-832-1055; open daily from 10am to 9pm

“Thanks to the generosity of Southern Nevada, and in particular, The Howard Hughes Corporation and Summerlin for their ongoing support, we are able to give our kids a happy holiday,” said Commissioner Weekly.  “Donating a toy is a small gesture that always puts a big smile on the faces of those who receive it.  We encourage everyone in Summerlin to join us this year in making the holidays a little brighter for others in our community.”
