Thrift store reopens to help community

Dinosaurs & Roses has reopened its doors to serve people in need.

Proceeds from all sales at the nonprofit thrift store go to HELP of Southern Nevada, East Valley Family Services, the Rape Crisis Center, Boys Town and other charitable organizations.

The store is located at 5220 W. Charleston Blvd. and will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays during Phase One.

The nonprofit dedicated to community outreach also assists low-income families — referred by local agencies and health providers — with clothing, shoes and toiletries. The store also offers a designated area for people to drop off donations.

Other families in need of assistance can email a letter to info@dinosaursandroses.org.

“We will always do our best to help,” Executive Director Michele Morgan says.
