On October 3rd, Lexicon Bank hosted a National Women’s Small Business Month mixer in collaboration with the National Association of Women-Owned Businesses (NAWBO). All proceeds from the event were donated to Spread the Word Nevada, the state’s largest children’s literacy nonprofit that distributes over 60,000 books a month to children in underserved neighborhoods.
“We are proud to spotlight Spread the Word Nevada this month,” said Ray Lucero, Lexicon Bank Vice President, Senior Relationship Manager. “I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with the Spread the Word Nevada team on countless occasions and I am overjoyed to raise awareness for their incredible organization.”
Spread the Word Nevada has distributed more than 6.7 million free books to over 730,000 children in need since its inception in 2001. In March 2022, Lexicon Bank sponsored Spread The Word Nevada’s 19th annual Storybook Gala at Resorts World Las Vegas. Each year, this gala is held to raise money for supplying books and reading materials to at-risk children across Nevada.
Lexicon Bank’s support is part of the Lexicon Bank Community Spotlight program, a monthly initiative that highlights local non-profit organizations that are making a difference in the Southern Nevada community.
