In a true sign that spring is in the air, Southern Highlands recently held its annual Spring Community Yard Sale. Lightening the load in closets, garages, homes, and more, the two-day neighborhood yard sale included a drive-through mobile shredding service and a donation drive for the Opportunity Village Thrift Store. In addition to unloading their own unwanted items, residents had the opportunity to uncover new treasures by shopping their neighbors’ wares.
As they have in the past, Southern Highlands residents delivered a variety of good-quality used furniture, housewares, and clothing for the OV Thrift Store. In its 60th year, Funds raised at the Thrift Store benefit programs and services for adults with intellectual disabilities. Additionally, it serves as a training center for those in the program that are interested in pursuing a career in retail. The OV Thrift Store is the organization’s oldest business and has a long-standing reputation for offering gently used items of the highest quality.
Topping off the weekend-long spring-cleaning event, a complimentary mobile shredding station at the Southern Highlands Corporate Center shredded more than six thousand pounds of documents on site. The shredding event allowed individuals to dispose of sensitive materials while keeping their identities secure.
Residents from more than 30 communities throughout Southern Highlands participated in the annual event, which was free and open to the entire Las Vegas Valley. The next Community Yard Sale event is scheduled for October 2-3, 2021.
