Held on the nationally-recognized Nonprofit Day, organizations throughout Southern Nevada will share how they have served the community during a 9 am virtual kickoff on Facebook.com/UnitedWaySN and throughout the day utilizing the hashtag #StoriesofHopeNV.
Founded on August 17, 1894 by Sherita J. Herling, National Nonprofit Day celebrates the world-changing work of nonprofits in Southern Nevada and on a global scale. "Stories of Hope" will be an opportunity for local nonprofits to share their stories to gain support to engage the community and the nation.
