LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Vegas Chamber is launching a gift card program to support local businesses and first responders partnership with Switch, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation and ItsOnMe.
The partnership will launch the “Switch to Kindness” campaign to support local businesses and first responders.
The program offers a one-stop shop platform for the public to purchase electronic gift cards from local businesses, which will then be distributed to Southern Nevada first responders by the LVMPD Foundation.
Gift cards may also be purchased and sent directly to friends, family, colleagues, and other recipients of choice.
The program is through the ItsOnMe portal, a Las Vegas-based company that makes it easy for consumers to gift local and has been utilized for gift-a-meal programs in other cities.
The electronic gift card will be delivered directly through an email system that leads to a recipient of choice or to the LVMPD Foundation to be donated to a first responder. The LVMPD Foundation administers the distribution of the gift cards to Southern Nevada first responders through its existing, proven distribution network.
The program is sponsored by Switch and is open to Vegas Chamber member-businesses, including businesses that are currently operating, as well as companies that have had to suspend their operations because of COVID-19.
Businesses that are not currently Vegas Chamber members may participate by signing up for a temporary free Vegas Chamber membership through the Chamber’s website.
Interested businesses that would like to be listed on the site for e-gift card purchases can register through VegasChamber.com.
Gift cards can also be purchased through the program on the website, just click the “Switch to Kindness” link.
