With the school year right around the corner (first day of school here in Clark County is 8/29) it’s definitely GO mode for Backpacks 4 Class Acts.
If your not familiar with this second year campaign, it is a school supplies drive aimed at providing Vegas kids with the essentials necessary to starting off the school year in a positive and confident manner.
Last year we provided Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada & Nevada Partnership For Homeless Youth with 500+ backpacks and a ton of school supplies. This year the goal has been to double that by donating 1,000 or more backpacks along with any other school supplies being an added bonus.
This year, all donations are going strictly to Nevada Partnership For Homeless Youth. We are currently at a total of 201 backpacks and miscellaneous school supplies as well as $335 of donations via Go Fund Me —> https://www.gofundme.com/2c5fnrjy
This video is from last year’s drive but still serves as a solid & brief introduction to everything…
So to conclude this year’s drive we are hosting an outdoor fitness session with Janelle Campbell. All the details are on the flier above but in short it’ll be taking place August 20th – 8am at Red Ridge Park. Admission is only 1 backpack! We’ll see you there!
