Third annual CCCU School Supply Drive provides for local at-risk students
LAS VEGAS, NV (August 17, 2021) — Clark County Credit Union (CCCU) collected 6,298 school supply items and raised $1,725 in cash donations from credit union members and employees to help make back to school a little easier for three local at-risk local schools.
In late July, CCCU collected high-demand school supply items, hygiene necessities like underwear and socks and winter coats in preparation for the colder months ahead. With the combined efforts of hundreds of our community members, CCCU was able to add a third school to support this year, one step closer to its goal of assisting six schools, one school per branch.
A stand-out donation came from CCCU members Michael and Michelle M. who gave 52,500 face masks and 100 bottles of hand sanitizer. They said, “We are just glad we can give back to our community.” In our current environment, these items are in high demand for students.
The school supply drive proudly provided support to Keller Elementary School, Antonello Elementary School and Fong Elementary School (just added this year). In addition to the supplies, the CCCU Cares Committee presented Keller ES* with a check to Green Our Planet. This will allow the school to participate in the Outdoor Garden STEM Program which brings a wide variety of skills to the schools, including architectural design, hydroponics, financial literacy, graphic arts, horticulture and health sciences.
CCCU hopes this school year is a little brighter for children in Southern Nevada, thanks to the support they received from the 2021 CCCU School Supply Drive.
