LAS VEGAS – Desert Radiology, a diagnostic imaging practice that has served Southern Nevada for more than 50 years, announced its virtual holiday philanthropic initiative, 25 Days of Do-Gooders. Starting December 1, the imaging practice will begin donating $250 to 25 charities every day through December 25.
Despite COVID-19, Desert Radiology has made it a top priority to continue its charitable endeavors through its Do-Gooders team, a group of Desert Radiology team members who have collectively donated thousands of volunteer hours across various charity events and programs.
In lieu of hosting toy drives this holiday season, Desert Radiology will provide 25 donations to 25 different charities selected by the practice’s teammates starting December 1 through December 25.
“We’re always looking for new ways to support our beloved Southern Nevada community and 2020 presented an extraordinary opportunity to help our neighbors,” said Matt Grimes, senior vice president of operations and chief operating officer. “Our hope is this virtual initiative will provide some relief to those most in need this holiday season.”
