Hospitality leader Diamond Resorts has partnered with the nonprofit to help local veterans in need

Sept. 26, 2019 (Las Vegas, NV) – Team members from Diamond Resorts®, a global leader in the hospitality, vacation ownership and entertainment industries, delivered more than 800 hygiene kits to the U.S.VETS – Las Vegas location on Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019, to support local veterans in need of personal necessity items.

U.S.VETS is the nation’s largest nonprofit provider of comprehensive services to homeless and at-risk veterans, with 20 residential sites and nine service centers across five states and in Washington D.C. The nonprofit has a mission of helping military veterans and their families successfully transition by providing housing, counseling, career development and comprehensive support.

The Las Vegas location operates more than 330 beds of transitional and permanent housing, and assists more than 400 veteran households with rapid re-housing and homeless prevention services each year.

With a corporate office and three managed resorts in Las Vegas, Diamond Resorts has strong ties to the community and partners with numerous local charities to support those in need. With help from Apollo Global Management and its portfolio partners, Diamond team members spent several days packing more than 800 bags with deodorant, toothpaste, hair combs, shampoo, conditioner and soap. They then personally dropped off the kits and toured the U.S.VETS – Las Vegas location to learn more about ways to help in the future.

“We have many team members, including numerous military veterans, who call Las Vegas home, and we are honored to be able to support the work U.S.VETS – Las Vegas is doing to help this incredible community,” said Mike Flaskey, CEO of Diamond Resorts. “Charity is a key tenet of our brand and we take supporting our military heroes seriously.”
