Nevada Associates Create Bridge to Asian Community alongside Las Vegas Police
PUBLISHED DECEMBER 1, 2017
Our associates in Nevada recently partnered with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Spring Valley Area Command on their Inaugural Rice Drive to raise funds to purchase rice for underprivileged Asian families in the area.
Although the Asian community represent one of the largest growing communities in Nevada, they remain an underserved population in Las Vegas. In an effort to continue building trust and increased communication, the LVMPD spearheaded the drive to donate rice, a main staple of the Asian diet, to bridge the culture between the police and community.
We are proud of our Las Vegas branch team collaborating to generously donate their own funds toward this effort. Collectively, the LVMPD and our bank teammates helped donate rice to over 400 families in the Las Vegas Spring Valley Area.
