Las Vegas Sands delivers 100,000 hygiene kits
Las Vegas – 14 December 2016
Las Vegas Sands Corp completes its worldwide volunteer effort to build 100,000 hygiene kits this year for social enterprise Clean the World to help improve the health and well-being of populations in need.
Kits assembled by Sands China and community volunteers at The Venetian Macao will benefit Children’s International, who will deliver the 35,000 kits to families in need in the Philippines.
The effort is part of LVS’s global corporate citizenship program, Sands Cares , and its ongoing partnership with Clean the World to support its mission of promoting good health and well-being around the globe through improved access to soap and hygiene education.
This is the third consecutive year Las Vegas Sands has built hygiene kits for Clean the World, and the 2016 build events will bring the total number of hygiene kits created with Las Vegas Sands to 400,000.
“Our series of hygiene kit builds over the past three years have helped protect thousands of vulnerable people around the world from hygiene-related illnesses and death, while promoting a sense of well-being and dignity,” says Ron Reese , senior vice president of global communications and corporate affairs at Las Vegas Sands.
“It’s united our team members with volunteers in our local communities to support a truly remarkable mission.”
Since 2011, LVS and Clean the World have recycled more than 190 tons of waste from LVS properties into more than 1.6 million bars of soap.
