RENO – Once again, Nevada State Bank is collecting new school supplies to support Communities In Schools of Western Nevada’s (CISWN) Fill the Bus School Supplies Drive. From July 1-31, members of the community can drop off supplies at all Nevada State Bank branches. Items needed include backpacks, markers and colored pencils, binders (1-inch to 3-inch), index cards, wide and college-ruled paper, dry-erase markers, Post-It notes, pencil sharpeners, pencil cases and pouches, and composition notebooks. School uniform clothing, athletic shoes and socks, and underwear for boys and girls also will be accepted.
On Aug. 2, the collected supplies will be delivered to CISWN’s Fill the Bus drive at the Sam’s Club, 4835 Kietzke Lane. CISWN is the local affiliate of the nation’s leading dropout prevention program. The nonprofit (www.cisnevada.org) works on-site in schools to assess the needs of students, from food, clothing and hygiene items, to mentoring and tutoring, ensuring every student is empowered to stay in school and achieve in life.
“We hope our branch collection will make it easy for the community to donate. Communities In Schools’ Fill the Bus campaign is a program our employees and clients support each year,” said Becky Petring, vice president and retail market sales manager for Nevada State Bank. “No one should start the school year without the basic supplies. We’re thankful that we can help remove barriers to learning by making sure students don’t have to worry about whether they have the supplies they need and can instead focus on learning.”
Nevada State Bank colleagues have donated thousands of much-needed school supplies, which reached more than 4,400 students in 8 schools in western Nevada that CISN serves. Click here for Nevada State Bank branch locations throughout northern Nevada.
