REALTORS deliver backpacks full of school supplies to local Boys & Girls Clubs
Nevada REALTORS are teaming up with Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the state to donate backpacks stocked with school supplies for students served by the clubs. The backpack drive is organized by the Nevada Association of REALTORS (NVAR) and its LeadershipNVAR Class of 2016 to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs throughout Nevada.
Starting Monday, REALTORS are visiting five local Boys & Girls Clubs to deliver more than 1,000 fully stocked backpacks to children who need them. LeadershipNVAR, NVAR’s signature program for personal and professional growth, organized the drive as part of its annual class project. REALTORS donated and collected backpacks stocked with pencils, folders, three-ring binders, highlighters, rulers, tape, USB flash drives and other school supplies at designated locations around the state. REALTORS collected more than 1,200 backpacks statewide, including more than 1,000 in Southern Nevada.
