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.
This upcoming school year, perhaps more than ever, students in Clark County are in need of school supplies. Skye Canyon is inviting you to help the students in this community by donating to our Back-to-School Supply Drive, benefitting Assistance League Las Vegas’ Operation School Bell. Throughout the week of July 13 – 19, 2020, as part of its Skye Serves charitable program, Skye Canyon will match all donations up to $2,000.
Despite the shortened 2019-2020 school year due to COVID-19, 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 are in need of things like clothing and school supplies.

This year, as part of its Skye Serves program, Skye Canyon will match all donations made up to $2,000. All donations will be delivered to Operation School Bell, a philanthropic program of Assistance League of Las Vegas. Operation School Bell provides new clothes, school supplies, and hygiene kits to students of the Clark County School District.
