Setting Students Up For Success

September 19, 2012

Autumn in Las Vegas may not bring crisp, cool air and leaves changing color on the trees, but it does usher in the beginning of a new school year.  Each fall, thousands of students in Clark County School District head back to class, but many of them don’t have the tools they need to succeed.  As they headed back to school themselves, UNLV students saw an opportunity to serve five elementary schools through their Adopt-A-School programRebel Service Council, UNLV CSUN Student Government, United Way of Southern Nevada, and Findlay Toyota teamed up to sponsor a school supply drive and Stuff the Truck event.

With amazing support from the community, Stuff the Truck was a success and little Rebels around the valley are off to a great start this school year!

Some of the many donated supplies included:                  

Binders: 133                                  Folders: 454

Backpacks: 43                               Glue: 127 bottles

Calculators: 33                              Markers: 136 boxes
