THANK YOU FOR FILLING FIVE BUSES!

The 3rd annual Fill The Bus school supply drive was a huge success! We filled an amazing FIVE buses with school supplies and uniforms for our students. Our sponsors and supporters were so generous to come out and donate – especially in the August heat!

We have to shout out to our incredible volunteers – especially the ones from the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas who came both days and worked tirelessly in the sun to sort, count, load and later UN-load box after box! The amazing team of CCSD bus drivers were (as usual) so crucial to our success. They also worked relentlessly to get things packed and transported and unpacked at our warehouse.

CEO of Communities In Schools of Nevada said, “I am so proud and appreciative of the support from the community and our partners, but also of the CIS staff – especially three key staff members who worked tirelessly both days  – Brittany McCoy, Allison Berry and Chip Carter. This event could not have been the success it was without their hard work and planning.”

We also had some of our Board members and other long-time supporters  – Dawn Hume & family, LeeAnn Inadomi & family and Tom Edington and Boy Scout Troop 745  – who came out and volunteered their time for the event.

It was a remarkable event to be a part of, to see how much people care about education and students in our schools. We’d like everyone to know what an impact this makes for our students! Since we have over 54 schools across the state this year, and thousands more students than last year we will be serving, this school supply drive was critical. To everyone involved in every way – THANK YOU! Your support and donations will make a difference not just this week, but all school year long!

Enjoy some pictures and please send some internet applause to all the folks on this list! They were all invaluable to our success and we can’t express our thanks enough!
