Benefitting the LVMPD Women of Metro
Las Vegas, July 12, 2022 – Las Vegas businessman Antonio Accornero presented a check to the LVMPD’s Women of Metro on Tuesday, as a show of his continuing support of the Police Department. Not only did Accornero donate to the Women of Metro, but he also generously twice-matched the gift with additional checks: one to the United Way of Southern Nevada and one to Child Haven. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department works very closely with both of these organizations, and Mr. Accornero’s donations will assist with citywide events held throughout the year.
“It’s very important to me to give back to my hometown, and I’m happy to be in a position to do that,” said Accornero. “I’m eager to continue fostering my relationship with Metro, as well as developing an ongoing connection with their community partners.”
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department created The Women of Metro Division to recognize and highlight the women in the department and the importance that diverse perspectives bring to the community. These women are dedicated to ensuring public safety and strengthening the relationships between the LVMPD and the people they serve. To find out more, please visit https://lvmpd.com
The United Way of Southern Nevada stands at the center of the community to provide solutions to Clark County's toughest problems. Working side-by-side with Southern Nevada nonprofits, businesses, and local leaders, UWSN tackles critical human services issues and builds pathways out of poverty. Donations to UWSN stay local and support the entire community and not just one cause. For more information, go to: https://www.uwsn.org
Child Haven is a Clark County-funded shelter for abused and neglected children. When children are removed from their homes and placed into protective custody, they have few, if any, personal belongings. The Department of Family Services provides a duffel bag filled with new clothing, toys, and other essential items to children when they depart the Child Haven campus to live with relatives or in a foster home. The Department does not receive funding to purchase the duffel bags and their contents. Instead, they rely on the generosity of community partners and the general public to help supply these basic necessities.
