Having the right school supplies can make a big difference for kids as they pursue their education. Research shows that children with the appropriate school supplies can improve grades, creativity, attitude towards learning, behavior, and self-image – increasing their chances for success at school.
Students in Clark County need school supplies for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year. Skye Canyon is inviting residents and the public to help students in this community by donating to its Back-to-School Supply Drive, benefitting Assistance League Las Vegas’ Operation School Bell.
Supplies needed include backpacks, scissors, pencils, crayons, notebooks, erasers, rulers, washable markers, glue sticks, folders, 3-ring notebooks, and paper. New and unworn children’s athletic shoes are of particular need.
Throughout the week of July 11 – 18, 2022, the community is encouraged to drop-off items at any number of locations including Skye Center, Skye Fitness and Aspire Coffee House, located inside of Skye Center. Drop-off locations within Skye Marketplace include Chase Bank and Club Pilates.
This year, as part of its ongoing Skye Serves charitable program, Skye Canyon Co-op will match all donations made, up to $2,000 in supplies and backpacks.
The 2020-2021 school year was the first return to in-person learning since the pandemic and the need for proper supplies continues. Last school year, Operation School Bell provided new clothing and other essentials to 7,426 students in need. It’s estimated that roughly 12,000 students in grades K-12 in the greater Las Vegas area remain in need of things like clothing and school supplies.
