Olive Crest in Nevada Launches Back-to-School Backpack Drive
School supplies needed for local at-risk children and youth
LAS VEGAS – Olive Crest in Nevada, a nonprofit organization that transforms the lives of abused and at-risk children through the healing power of family, is hosting their Back-to-School Back Pack and School Supply Drive, July 2 – Aug. 3, to collect new school supplies and essentials to help struggling families in the Las Vegas community. Much needed items include paper, pencils, art supplies, tissues, crayons and pens. The supplies and backpacks will be distributed to over 100 Olive Crest’s clients, from pre-school age through high school.
“School starts early in Southern Nevada and we want to help struggling families by providing their kids with the tools they need to excel at school,” said Myesha Wilson, executive director for Olive Crest in Nevada. “Sometimes something as simple as giving a child school supplies or a backpack can help struggling families which in turn can help with child abuse prevention. Our message is that at Olive Crest, “Child Abuse Stops Here!”
School supplies and backpacks can be delivered to Olive Crest in Nevada, 4285 N. Rancho Drive or Mountaintop Faith Ministries, 2845 S. Lindell Road. To donate a pre-assembled backpack or to make a financial donation online, please visit www.olivecrest.org/donate.
