The Nevada Mining Association (NVMA) launched its 7th annual Hope for Heat campaign on Memorial Day. The campaign is running through Monday, September 5 (Labor Day). NVMA will make a $100 contribution each day the temperature hits 100 degrees in Las Vegas and a $90 donation every day the temperature hits 90 degrees in Reno and Elko.
In honor of its “100 Days of Giving” campaign commemorating 100 years in business, Granite Construction will donate an additional $33 per region every time the temperature milestones are reached.
At the end of the campaign, proceeds will be equally divided among the Boys & Girls Clubs of Truckee Meadows, Elko, Winnemucca, and Southern Nevada.
Boys & Girls Clubs is a national organization of local chapters which provide voluntary after-school programs for young people. Funds raised will support Boys & Girls Clubs programs and the more than 14,000 children the four affiliates serve.
Since 2016, NVMA has contributed $73,160 to Nevada nonprofits via the Hope for Heat program.
