Thursday May 10 is RED Day, a Day of Giving Back

RED Day should not be confused with Red Nose Day.  RED Day stands for Renew, Energize and Donate. It’s a day where Keller Williams associates around the world spend the day away from their business serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities.

A few years ago Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas decided they would serve the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) on RED Day.  Did you know that there are 7,000 homeless youths on the streets of Las Vegas on any given day?  Shocking I know – I was stunned by that number.

Many of the kids who find themselves on the street will go to a Terrible Herbst (any of the many) in Las Vegas where there is a sign saying “safe place”.  The workers at Terrible Herbst will call the NPHY and the “at risk” teen will be picked up and taken to the intake center and given a meal and a toothbrush or other necessities.  They also have counselors and social workers to speak with the teen and evaluate them. In this same location, these teens can get help from tutors so they can keep up with their education.  Also they can get medical or dental aid through the program or just drop by when they need some food.  The mission is to keep at risk teens from falling through the cracks and committing crimes, doing drugs or get swept up in prostitution.

The NPHY has a few residences they maintain for kids that are trying to become more stable.  Keller Williams Las Vegas helps with upgrades and repairs to these homes to make them livable spaces.  Replace fixtures, fix and repair lighting and pipes in the kitchens and baths and even provide bedding and dishes to the homes.  If you are a builder or someone who has access to building materials and are willing to donate to this admirable cause – (or even give a good discount) please reach out to me at 702 SELL NOW (702-735-5669)!

Would you do me a favor? Yes, you! If every person reading this blog would go to my business FB page (https://www.facebook.com/HowardTeamLV/) and donate $1 to our RED Day fundraiser, it will go a long way towards our goal to help the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth.

Choose to have an amazing day…..Jeff

Ridgebrook 4th Annual Garage Sale – Saturday April 28

 

The community of Ridgebrook is having their 4th Annual Garage Sale on Saturday April 28 from 8 a.m. until noon.  Unlike some parts of this country, we are in the middle of spring in the Las Vegas Valley – spring cleaning is well underway and that means lots and lots of great stuff will be for sale – COME AND GET A GREAT DEAL!!!!

A good garage sale has two important components – one: great merchandise and two: lots of people looking for a great deal.  Well we have incredible diverse items to buy! That means you have to come to Ridgebrook.  Driving here is easy. From Town Center, take Desert Inn west, go over the 215 and take the first left.  There will be a park with kids handing out maps of homes that have great stuff for sale.

The Village of Ridgebrook is one of the smaller villages that are part of the award winning master-planned community of Summerlin and located near the Ridges.  There are four beautiful neighborhoods in Ridgebrook that circle a lovely park.  There is Echo Ridge, Granite Peaks, Sunset Ridge and Southstar.  The area is family-friendly and located close to the 215 Beltway – so you can get anywhere in the valley quickly.  Ridgebrook is also very near Downtown Summerlin – a retail, restaurant and entertainment destination.  Plus home of the Golden Knights training facility (they love when fans come to cheer then on when they are training).
