Henderson, Nevada — Not every parent nor legal guardian living in Southern Nevada can afford to acquire all the school supplies their child will need when regular classes resume in August 2017. That’s why the Bank of Nevada is inviting all the public to join its employees and customers in helping to provide school supplies to at-risk pupils and students who attend Clark County School District Schools in both Las Vegas and Henderson.
For a couple of weeks, (from August 8 through August 21, 2017) the Bank of Nevada’s Back-to-School Supplies Drive will collect school supplies and related items, which will then be donated to elementary schools where a massive percentage of parents may not have the enough wealth to fund their children’s school supply needs.
The donated school supplies will then be divided amongst the following schools:
- C.T. Sewell Elementary – Henderson
- Kermit R. Booker Elementary – Las Vegas
- Rex Bell Elementary – Las Vegas
- Rainbow Dreams Academy – Las Vegas
All the aforementioned public schools are designated Title 1 schools, meaning a majority of pupils and students qualify for free or reduced price lunch, based on family income.
The general public is strongly encouraged to join the Nevada’s Back-to-School Supplies Drive by donating school supplies such as notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, rulers, backpacks, erasers, scissors and glue sticks to any Bank of Nevada branch in Las Vegas, Henderson or North Las Vegas.
Donations are accepted during business hours, from Monday through Friday, 9 P.M. to 5 P.M. at the following adresses:
