Friends of the Shade Tree is a local
organization founded to financially support The Shade Tree Shelter in providing
a safe refuge to physically abused and homeless women and children. The Shade
Tree is the only 24-hour accessible shelter designed specifically to meet the
needs of women and children in Southern Nevada. During the last year alone The
Shade Tree provided over 80,000 nights of shelter, and the daytime shelter
programs served an additional 17,000 plus women and children.
In the past nine years our organization has raised over $1 million dollars to help
provide life changing services to the women and children of Shade Tree,
promoting stability, dignity and self-reliance." ...A hand up, not a hand out. We
were especially pleased to learn that all funds donated this year will be
matched up to 2.5 million dollars, by a local philanthropic individual, one of many who attend our annual gala.
As a valued member of the Las Vegas community, we know we can count on you to
support the many women and children in need; we would love to have you join us
at the many events we have planned for this year. We will keep you posted on
the web site or feel to contact us at 888-311-3129. Looking forward to your
help and support.
