Ruby Mountain Resource Center has several initiatives that, up to this point have, not been well advertised. First, they do a food distribution twice a month. This is through a local grant called the ‘Hunger One-Stop Shop.’ Fairly recently, RMRC has paired with LDS missionaries to help distribute this on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. This has been a great help to the community, and can be signed up for at Family Resource Center.
One of the other initiatives that is now taking place comes pretty directly from some legislation to get the disabled population integrated into the community workforce. Currently, this initiative is fairly small, but RMRC is working with Vocational Rehabilitation, known better as Voc Rehab, to begin this integration. Initiatives like this are in place to achieve some requirements that are mandated by the state of the Nevada, but the ultimate goal, which RMRC fully supports, is to eventually get a larger population of people with disabilities integrated into the working community.
If you have not been to Ruby Mountain Stores recently, you may also notice that there has been a real push for organization. The Ruby Mountain Boutique now houses all of the clothing, which happened fairly recently. This caused a domino-effect that emphasized even greater organization of the stores, as there was more to fit into Ruby Mountain Boutique, and more room to display larger furniture items at Ruby Mountain Thrift.
RMRC is always working on new initiatives. All of them revolve around bettering our employees, the stores, but most of all, the community. People in the community can get involved by donating to the store, volunteering, or simply trying to shop at Ruby Mountain Stores before moving on to department stores. In any case, we are always appreciative of the community support that we receive!
