LandWell Donates 2.37 Acres To Opportunity Village


HENDERSON, Nev. — The LandWell Company, a subsidiary of Basic Management, Inc., will donate 2.37 acres of land, valued at $835,000, to Opportunity Village today. The land will be used to for an expansion of its campus in Henderson, Nevada.

The LandWell Company made the decision after learning the Walters Family Campus of Opportunity Village has a waiting list for services because the facility is at capacity, which is attributed to the City of Henderson's rapid growth. Currently, there are more than 200 people waiting for the vocational training and employment programs.

This donation will allow Opportunity Village the ability to expand its Document Destruction Program and begin new programs that will train and employ people in meaningful jobs within the community. The Henderson campus currently serves about 90 clients who are employed in either the Document Destruction Program or in Packaging and Assembly providing services for business customers. In 1992, LandWell donated the original 1.63 acres of land where the campus is located today.

Opportunity Village was founded in 1954 as a not-for-profit organization that serves people with intellectual disabilities in Southern Nevada. It provides meaningful training, support, and employment, enhancing their lives and the lives of their families.

The LandWell Company is an affiliate of Basic Management Inc. and known in the area for several successful development projects in Southern Nevada, including Black Mountain Industrial Center, Valley Auto Mall, and the Traverse Point Mixed-Use Development. The LandWell Company currently is involved in remediating and planning a 2,200-acre parcel of land, which will become a mixed-use master planned community.

We're highlighting this donation as a best practice because it demonstrates the value of a company stepping up to meet a specific nonprofit need within their community. By working with nonprofit organizations, companies can learn how their services or unused assets can be employed for the betterment of the community as a whole.
