LAS VEGAS, NV – As mega trade shows and conferences come and go in Las Vegas, so, too, must the makings and merchandise in preparation for the next visitor-filled convention. And with the Winter 2018 Las Vegas Market set to run January 28 through February 1, host World Market Center is now graciously donating truckloads of the latest in home décor and furniture to the Opportunity Village Thrift Store.
From bohemian chic dresser sets to rustic farmhouse kitchen tables, glamorous light fixtures to vintage wall art and more, savvy shoppers come back year after year to discover the unique and trendy offerings that, with the help of volunteers, make their way from the massive venue to the not-for-profit’s 390 S. Decatur retail location following the annual show. As the most comprehensive furniture, home décor and gift market in the Western United States, the Opportunity Village Thrift Store’s donation yield will once again include brand-new pieces as seen in high-end furnishings publications – many with deals of up to 50-75% or more off the retail price.
“Whether you’re an interior design pro or an amateur decorator on a budget, these are items you’ve probably been coveting online or in a magazine … and now, they’re in your price range,” says Eric Butwinick, Opportunity Village’s Director of Retail Operations. “Shop early and shop often in the weeks to come; these donations will go fast.”
Shoppers can browse and buy World Market Center merchandise – and much more – from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday through Saturday, with Sunday hours from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Every penny of the retail shop’s proceeds support Opportunity Village’s myriad programs and services for Southern Nevadans with intellectual disabilities, including training and providing a paycheck to the Thrift Store’s many client employees.
About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than 60 years later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves more than 2,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that make their lives more purposeful and interesting.
Opportunity Village citizens – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work at Opportunity Village’s Employment Resource Centers and in jobs throughout the community, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $3.7 million in 2016. They are hard working and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading more fulfilling lives.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts and fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $37 million annually.
