The “NEW” Variety Early Learning Center to be established at Lorenzi Park, West Las Vegas needs your help to raise $750,000.00 dollars for labor and materials. Our objective also includes securing skilled and non-skilled volunteers for the renovation of the former Nevada State Museum at Lorenzi Park. We welcome any form of contribution whether it is monetary, in-kind donations or of time. The natural setting of Lorenzi Park will provide a nurturing and peaceful environment for the community’s children in need. The Lorenzi Park Campus will replace the outdated and outmoded 57 year old facility located at 990 D Street, Las Vegas. The City plans to tear down the current Variety Center building in the near future so time is of the essence! To learn more about the “NEW” Lorenzi Campus visit www.varietyearlylearningcenter.org.
