Backpacks, Supplies and Clothes Needed for Children

HENDERSON -- A Henderson non-profit organization is asking for the community's help in providing children with back to school supplies.

The Henderson Back 2 School Celebration will be held August 21. It will provide children from several local organizations with a new backpack, school supplies and at least one new outfit.  "More families than ever are struggling to get school supplies and clothing for their children," said Daniele Dreitzer, HopeLink. 

HopeLink is asking the community for donations to help provide new school clothes for each child. Other organizations involved in the Back 2 School Celebration include the Salvation Army, Giving Life Ministries, Central Christian Church, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada and the Henderson welfare office. HopeLink hopes to distribute supplies to 1,000 children in need. 

Those who would like to adopt a student and provide back to school clothing and shoe donations can call HopeLink at 566-0576 or e-mail Robbie Keeley at Robbie@link2hope.org. Donations can also be dropped off or arranged for pick by August 13.
