LAS VEGAS – Although it’s still mid-summer, parents and teachers are already starting to plan for the purchase of school supplies and uniforms, and for those less fortunate, it can be a stressful experience.
Nevada State Bank is showing its support again this year by collecting school supplies and donations for Communities In Schools (CIS) of Nevada, the local affiliate of the nation’s leading dropout prevention program.
From July 25 to Aug. 11, all Nevada State Bank branches throughout the state will be collecting supplies for its annual “Fill the Bus” campaign. Needed school supplies include backpacks, notebooks, notebook paper, pocket folders, markers, crayons, colored pencils and more, as well as gift cards and uniformed clothing for boys and girls.
“Our employees and clients are very giving to those less fortunate,” said Sandi Milton, senior vice president of marketing communications for Nevada State Bank. “We have been strong supporters of Communities In Schools for years and have seen it truly change children’s lives. Last year, our colleagues filled a truckload with supplies for “Fill the Bus” – we’re hoping to exceed that with the help of the community. Hopefully our branches are an easy location to drop off your donation and then we’ll deliver it all to Communities in Schools on August 12.”
CIS of Nevada (www.cisnevada.org) works on-site in schools to assess the needs of students, from food, clothing and hygiene items, to mentoring and tutoring, making sure every student is empowered to stay in school and achieve in life.
Last year, Nevada State Bank colleagues donated thousands of much-needed school supplies which reached more than 44,000 students in 43 schools statewide that CIS of Nevada serves. All donations will be dropped off at the CIS bus on Aug. 12, at the Sam’s Club at 7100 Arroyo Crossing Parkway in Las Vegas.
