While in Las Vegas for the NADA Show, the national dealer association donated $50,000 to the personnel at the Nellis Air Force Base, Creech Air Force Base and the Nevada Test and Training Range in southern Nevada. The money went to the Nellis Support Team (NST), a nonprofit organization that supports the 30,000 airmen and women and their families at those bases.
“A portion of NADA’s donation will be used to reopen the base’s Auto Skills Center, which was shuttered in 2013 from the U.S. federal budget sequestration that resulted in significant spending cuts,” said Patrick McNaught, a government affairs advocate from Las Vegas who serves as honorary civilian commander of NST.
NADA’s contribution will be used to renovate the Auto Skills Center, including remodeling the facility, buying tools, recertifying the lifts and adding eight service bays, McNaught said.
“No one is more inspiring than the men and women in the military,” said Richard Stephens, chairman of the NADA Show committee. “NADA firmly believes in community service and each year contributes to an an organization located in the NADA Show’s host city.”Download Bulletin PDF
