Tweet It: This June @MiracleMileLV @phvegas donates all $ tossed in the fountain to @AFANLV! #CareGiveChange
This June, Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino will collect donations in its fountain for Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN). All change tossed into the popular water feature as well as the indoor rainstorm will benefit AFAN as part of the shopping center’s Caring, Giving, Changing community campaign.
Aid for AIDS of Nevada is the state’s oldest and largest AIDS service organization, providing support and advocacy for adults and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada. AFAN works to reduce HIV infection through prevention education to eliminate fear, prejudice and the stigma associated with the disease.
The partnership between Miracle Mile Shops and AFAN is part of the center’s Caring, Giving, Changing campaign, celebrating a year of change in 2012. In addition to the monthly fountain fundraisers, the Caring, Giving, Changing campaign also raises funds for other programs and organizations through community sponsorships, additional partnerships and a number of cash and in-kind donations. In previous months the center has teamed up with the Communities In Schools of Nevada (May), Autism Speaks (April), National Multiple Sclerosis Society (March), American Heart Association (February) and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (January). In 2011, Miracle Mile Shops raised a total of $100,000 for numerous local and national non-profit organizations and aims to surpass that number in 2012.
Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN) was founded in 1984 and is the oldest and largest AIDS service organization in the state of Nevada. 2009 marked AFAN’s 25th anniversary of practicing its unyielding commitment to the community by providing unparalleled health expertise, support and advocacy for adults and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in southern Nevada. Over the years, AFAN has created various programs that offer consistent and comprehensive assistance including direct client service programs, food programs, prevention and education programs and community outreach. As part of AFAN’s mission, these client service programs assist in enhancing the physical health and psychosocial wellness of the individuals they serve, while promoting dignity and improving the quality of their lives.
