LAS VEGAS – Teachers and students throughout the Las Vegas valley hope the generosity of Southern Nevadans continues this year, as Nevada State Bank begins collecting school supplies and uniforms for the annual Community In Schools of Nevada Fill the Bus campaign.
Beginning today, and continuing through Aug. 3, all Nevada State Bank branches throughout Southern Nevada will be collecting supplies, included much-needed backpacks, number 2 pencils (regular and mechanical), binders (1” and 2”), markers, rulers, pocket folders, crayons, erasers, glue, highlighters and colored pencils. Gift cards and uniformed clothing for boys and girls are also needed.
Communities In Schools (CIS) of Nevada is the local affiliate of the nation’s leading dropout prevention program.
“Communities In Schools and its Fill the Bus campaign is a program our employees and customers rally around each year,” said Sandi Milton, senior vice president of public relations for Nevada State Bank. “Teachers and students are in desperate need of school supplies and uniforms, and we’re thankful that Nevadans give what they can to help those in need.”
CIS of Nevada (https://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 51,000 students in 47 schools statewide that CIS of Nevada serves. All donations will be dropped off at the CIS bus on Aug. 4, at the Sam’s Club at 7100 Arroyo Crossing Parkway in Las Vegas.
