Matter Real Estate Group, the community-minded development firm behind http://uncommons.com/, has donated $25,000 to support efforts led by Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

The donation will support the Culinary Workers Union Local 226’s Helping Hand program, which is helping provide food assistance to those in need within the Las Vegas community.

The $25,000 donation is part of a $100,000 commitment that Matter has made toward local efforts in the fight against coronavirus.

Thus far, $25,000 was donated toward the purchase of much needed N95 face masks for healthcare professionals in support of efforts by Gov. Steve Sisolak and $25,000 was donated to the Jewish Family Services Agency to provide meals for senior citizens in support of efforts by Naft.

The remaining $25,000 donation is earmarked to support additional needs as identified by Sisolak.

To further support the community, Matter and UnCommons are continuing their efforts to provide nearly 4,000 free meals to each of the 14 hospitals in the Las Vegas Valley.

Together with Burke Construction Group, Matter will be supporting some of Las Vegas' top restaurants, including Piero’s Italian Cuisine, Lotus of Siam, Sushi Kame and Urth Caffé, to provide healthcare professionals with upscale dinners now through Saturday, April 25.
