Our team believes in giving back to the community by volunteering, supporting, organizing, donating to, and even founding worthy local causes. One of Steve Jones’ most notable contributions is being a founding and board member (1996 to 2007) of the Boys Hope Girls Hope group home.
The organization helped academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential as men and women by providing value centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college. Merlin Contracting, along with Del Webb, our contractors and suppliers, all donated time and materials to create a 4,700-square-foot home to house six boys and three staff members. All but $10,000 of the total costs were covered through these efforts.
Through the years, Merlin Contracting has supported Habitat for Humanity, Boy Scouts of America/Boulder Dam Area Council, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Nathan Adelson Hospice, Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas, Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation, Las Vegas West Rotary, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, Las Vegas Ballet, Special Olympics of Nevada, Opportunity Village, Nevada Conservation League, Nevada Military Support Alliance, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Communities in Schools Nevada, Komen for A Cure, Haiti Hurricane Relief Fund, Stem Cell Cancer and Regenerative Medical Research Foundation, Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada, the Daniel Island Community Foundation in support of the tragedy at the Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, SC and the UNLV Foundation. Steve and Bart have also been both longtime supporters of the Nature Conservancy.
