Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada (RTSNV) and Republic Services hit the streets to help their neighbors in the Historic Westside area of Las Vegas. Adhering to safe social distancing protocols, employees distributed dozens of ‘Safe at Home’ kits, which give households the tools they need to keep their homes safe during COVID-19. Kits included sanitizing spray, face masks, hand sanitizer, hand soap, flashlights, first aid kits, and more.
These kits were distributed as phase one of RTSNV’s Historic Westside Revitalization Project, which is funded through a grant provided by Republic Services. To date, Republic Services has awarded thousands of dollars to go towards RTSNV’s various projects and mission to transform lives of lives of low-income homeowners by rehabilitating existing homes to improve their overall health and safety.
With more than 1,200 community partners and volunteers, RTSNV has renovated more than 7,500 homes, impacting the lives of more than 14,000 Southern Nevadans. Rebuilding Together’s local affiliates and nearly 100,000 volunteers complete about 10,000 rebuild projects nationwide each year.
