Once again, our sponsors, partners and donors in the Las Vegas, Reno and Elko communities OUTDID themselves in helping Communities In Schools of Nevada collect an incredible 9+ buses filled with school supplies for the over 58,000 students we serve across the state – and we’re still counting!
Check out a short video of the event here:
In Las Vegas, our partners donated an incredible 104,681 items, valued at $142,496!
In Reno, our team collected $11,500 worth of uniforms, backpacks, gift cards, donations and school supplies!
The Elko drive with our partners, the Soroptimist Club just ended and we will bring totals when we have them!
If you still want to help, you can always click below to go to our Amazon wish list page here and send your donation to our office. We’ll then get it out to our schools for students who need supplies.
