Nevada State Bank collects school supplies for Communities In Schools of Nevada "Fill the Bus" School Supplies Drive

LAS VEGAS – For the fifth year, Nevada State Bank is collecting new school supplies to support Communities In Schools of Nevada’s (CISN) Fill the Bus School Supplies Drive. From July 1-31, members of the community can drop off supplies at all Nevada State Bank branches. Items needed include backpacks, markers and colored pencils, binders (1-inch to 3-inch), index cards, wide and college-ruled paper, dry-erase markers, Post-It notes, pencil sharpeners, pencil cases and pouches, and composition notebooks. School uniform clothing, athletic shoes and socks, and underwear for boys and girls also will be accepted.


On Aug. 2, the collected supplies will be delivered to CISN’s Fill the Bus events held simultaneously at the Galleria Mall in Henderson and Sam’s Club on I-215 & Rainbow. CISN is the local affiliate of the nation’s leading dropout prevention program. The nonprofit (www.cisnevada.org) works on-site in schools to assess the needs of students, from food, clothing and hygiene items, to mentoring and tutoring, ensuring every student is empowered to stay in school and achieve in life. 


“We hope our branch collection will make it easy for the community to donate. Communities In Schools Fill the Bus campaign is a program our employees and clients support each year,” said Sandi Milton, senior vice president of marketing communications for Nevada State Bank. “No one should start the school year without the basic supplies. We’re thankful that we can help remove barriers to learning by making sure students don’t have to worry about whether they have the supplies they need and can instead focus on learning.”


For the past five years, Nevada State Bank colleagues have donated thousands of much-needed school supplies, which reached more than 67,000 students in 63 schools statewide that CISN serves. Click here for Nevada State Bank branch locations throughout Southern Nevada.
