Back to School Donations and Drives in Las Vegas

Published On August 14, 2013 | By Christa Schueler | Charity, Community, Education

Back to school means buying your children all of the items necessary for returning to the classroom: supplies, backpacks, lunchboxes and clothing. Yet, there are families who are not able to afford basic necessities let alone school expenses. That’s why various local charities and businesses are organizing back-to-school donations and drives to assist those families in need with getting their children ready for school.

If you would like to donate or get more information about donating, Recess has compiled a list of places you can visit or contact:
