Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Foundation Launches
Back-to-School Initiative to Fund 12,000 Backpacks
LVMPD Foundation partners with LVMPD Office of Community Engagement
to benefit local students in Southern Nevada
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation and the LVMPD Office of Community Engagement launch its 2022 Back-to-School drive to raise funds to purchase more than 12,000 backpacks and essential school supplies for local students in Southern Nevada.
The Back-To-School initiative is designed to help alleviate financial burdens for many families working to make ends meet. For every $15.00 donation, a Southern Nevada student will receive a backpack, essential school supplies and hygiene kit. The public is encouraged to sponsor a student for $15.00, 10 students for $150.00 or an entire classroom for $450.00 by texting “BACKPACK” to (725) 217-1807.
The backpacks and essential school supplies will be distributed from all 10 area commands to at-risk children in their corresponding neighborhoods during the month of August.
“The Back-to-School drive is designed to help alleviate the worries of those family experiencing financial hardships,” said Tom Kovach, Executive Director of the LVMPD Foundation. “So many students in the community need help returning to the classroom with confidence by having the supplies they need. The Back-to-School drive helps promote positive connections with law enforcement while setting up our students for a successful school year. “
