McDonald’s is teaming up with FOX5, the Salvation Army, and NV Energy in order to collect school supplies for local Clark County students. The drive began on Monday July 30th and will continue until Sunday, August 12th. People can drop off supplies at any participating neighborhood McDonald’s location.
“No child should be without school supplies… while you’re out shopping for school supplies for your own child, why not pick up an extra item for someone in need?”
“No child should be without school supplies,” says Thomas Arlt, President of the local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association. “With all of the budget cuts teachers have gone through, and with the economy still down, this is something that we can all do to help. While you’re out shopping for school supplies for your own child, why not pick up an extra item for someone in need?”
Last year this drive collected enough school supplies to stuff 1,000 backpacks. This year they have set the goal to double what they collected last year. The Salvation Army will stuff and deliver backpacks to local, in need Elementary, Middle and High Schools on August 20th through
August 24th. Items needed include colored pencils, crayons, erasers, folders, glue sticks, hand sanitizer, and much more. For a full list of supplies please visit ClarkCoSchools.org .
