Sol-Up makes $15,000 donation to Opportunity Village.

Donation will support over 3,000 people with disabilities throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

LAS VEGAS – Sol-Up announced today that it has donated to Opportunity Village in the amount of $15,000. During the month of November 2021, Sol-Up and Opportunity Village partnered together to donate $200-$250 from the sale of each solar system to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Southern Nevada.

“We’re incredibly grateful for Sol-Up’s generosity in putting on this initiative,” said Stacy Ostrau, Vice President of Philanthropy at Opportunity Village. “Just as solar power turns sunlight into electricity, it takes kind-hearted groups like Sol-Up believing in our mission to help OV convert thoughtful programming into enriched lives for so many amazing people and their families.”

“Contributing to the mission of the Opportunity Village has brought us great joy this holiday season,” said Frank Rieger, CEO, Sol-Up. “We’re glad that we’ve been able support individuals living with intellectual disabilities alongside the incredible team at Opportunity Village.”
