LAS VEGAS – NAIOP Southern Nevada’s community project “Getting Dirty for a Cause” has received sizable donations for their project with St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in renovating four cottages at its Boulder City campus. Colliers International-Las Vegas’ charitable arm Links for Life donated $20,000 and Martin-Harris Construction donated $5,000.
The project will be divided into two phases, with each phase involving a complete renovation of two 1,200-square-foot cottages, costing about $40,000 per phase. Renovations include completely remodeling each cottage, from new roofs to floors and new appliances. Phase 1 starts in September, and work for phase 2 begins in February 2019.
NAIOP members AJB General Contractor, The Korte Company, McCarthy Building Companies and R&O Construction have all volunteered to serve as construction superintendents for each cottage renovation. Among other duties, they will help volunteers learn new skills as well as work to maintain a safe work site for all volunteers.
St. Jude’s Ranch is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission of rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected children and providing a safe and nurturing transitional home for them. St. Jude’s serves about 500 local children per year.
