Las Vegas Sands has donated $175,000 to the Asian Community Development Council, building on the company's Sands Cares partnership with the non-profit organisation serving the Asian American Pacific Islander community in southern Nevada.
Coinciding with AAPI Heritage Month in May, the 2023 Sands Cares donation to ACDC supports two capacity-building initiatives: the Healthy Asians and Pacific Islanders Medical Center and the API Language Link, enabling ACDC to provide critical in-language health and social services to the AAPI community.
Sands previously supported ACDC with funding to open the HAPI Medical Center last September. The clinic provides the AAPI community with a 100 per cent bilingual staff to deliver high-quality, in-language care, removing barriers often faced in obtaining health care services.
Sands' 2023 funding will help the HAPI Medical Center host community health care events to deliver medical and dental services, mammograms and vaccinations.
