Redbox+ Southwest Las Vegas to host event for school and hygiene supply donations to benefit St. Jude’s Ranch for Children
LAS VEGAS – RedBox+ Southwest, Las Vegas will hold its first annual Back to School Fill the Bin event on July 31, 2021, between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at Walmart in the Tropicana Beltway Center at
5200 South Fort Apache Road, Las Vegas, Nev. The back-to-school drive will support children and youth of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, a community of hope and healing, and will provide school and hygiene supplies essential to children living in foster care.
The Southern Nevada community is encouraged to purchase and donate school supplies and hygiene items such as notebooks, crayons, backpacks, clothing, toothbrushes, toothpaste, body wash and more. Then, the new items can be placed in the Redbox+ container outside of Walmart to help “fill the bin.” The children of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children will receive all the donations to prepare them for the upcoming school year.
“Although we are a new company in Southern Nevada, we are natives ourselves, and always looking for ways to contribute to our community,” said Dwayne Murray, General Manager of RedBox+ Southwest Las Vegas. “We have been blown away by the mission of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children and its vision for the future. This is our way of giving back and helping the community make an impact to give hope to children that need it most.”
RedBox+ Southwest Las Vegas will provide a container, for customers to drop in their donations. All donations will then be delivered directly to St. Jude’s Ranch.
“We are grateful RedBox+ is paving the way for community support to ensure our children will have everything they need for a successful new school year,” said St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Chief Executive Officer Christina Vela. “Every child deserves to feel empowered to do their best, especially after not being in the classroom last year.”
