It was a day for holiday cheer and holiday tears of joy at HELP USA Las Vegas’ Renaissance Apartments as World Market Center Las Vegas donated furniture to families in need as a part of the its annual Furniture Donation Day.
“The tenants at HELP USA’s Renaissance Apartments are working hard every day to better the lives of their families. In many instances they could not adequately furnish their apartments. The donation of furniture from World Market Center Las Vegas will brighten their lives and make their holidays so much better,” said Beverly Johnson, HELP USA’s executive director.
Many residents of the apartment complex, which provides affordable housing and assistance programs for individuals in need, had absolutely no furniture while others had only air mattresses to sleep on.
Among the donations presented by World Market Center Las Vegas last Thursday were 22 beds, including three queen-sized sets; hundreds of blankets and pillows; animated wall art; dining table and chairs; three hutches; two sofas; and two futons.
HELP USA is the nation’s leading provider of housing and services for the homeless. The Las Vegas affiliate was created to oversee the housing development and property management activities in Southern Nevada. In the late 1990s, HELP USA was invited by the mayor of Las Vegas to address the city’s rapidly growing need for temporary housing for the homeless. Since that time, HELP has developed four residential properties with a total of 320 units.
HELP Renaissance Apartments is HELP’s most recent affordable housing initiative in Las Vegas. The 50-unit complex offers housing to people earning less than 50 percent of the area median income.
World Market Center Las Vegas is a state-of-the-art campus that showcases furniture, decorative accessories, gifts, lighting, area rugs, home textiles and related segments, as well as the Las Vegas Design Center, which is now open daily to consumers and designers.
