On Wednesday, NV Energy donated two vehicles from their own fleet to 2 nonprofits in the community.

The recipients included Transition Services which provides work for more than 400 people with developmental disabilities.

"We have 6 locations and we have an aging fleet of vehicles," said Sally Rothfuss, Transition Services Executive Director.

And they're already looking forward to putting their new set of wheels to good use.

Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada also received the keys to a pick-up truck.

"We do critical home repairs for veterans, seniors and disabled people in the Las Vegas Valley," said Bob Cleveland, Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada.

He said the new addition is a relief for us not to have to go and rent a vehicle to transport equipment, it makes us look like a more professional company.

The goal for both nonprofits is that money once spent on renting vehicles can now be used to help their programs help people.
