Bank of Nevada Collecting Back-to-School Supplies for Southern Nevada At-Risk Students

 

 Bank of Nevada Collecting Back-to-School Supplies for Southern Nevada At-Risk Students

 

Not every parent in Southern Nevada can afford to purchase all the school supplies their child will need when classes resume in August. That’s why Bank of Nevada is inviting the public to join its employees and customers in helping to provide necessary school supplies to at-risk students who attend Clark County School District Schools in Las Vegas and Henderson.

For two weeks, (Tuesday, August 8 through Monday, August 21, 2017) the Bank of Nevada Back-to-School Supplies Drive will collect school-related items which will then be donated to elementary schools where a large percentage of parents may not have the resources to purchase needed supplies.

The donated school supplies will be split among 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 schools listed above are designated Title 1 schools, meaning a majority of students qualify for free or reduced price lunch, based on family income. 

The general public is strongly encouraged to join this effort by dropping off school supplies such as notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, rulers, backpacks, erasers, scissors and glue sticks to any Bank of Nevada location in Las Vegas, Henderson or North Las Vegas. 

Donations are accepted during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the following locations:

Bank of Nevada Headquarters – (Sahara near Rancho) 2700 West Sahara Avenue, Las Vegas

Aliante – (Aliante Parkway at 215 Expressway) 6915 Aliante Parkway, North Las Vegas
