Some of the backpacks donated to the Clark County School District

On August 22nd the Sands team delivered 130 new backpacks to a local school for high risk children. The packs were filled with cool school supplies.

To date, we have donated 232 backpacks to the Clark County School District.

“It is through hard work and dedicated individuals that we are able to positively impact the community,” said Mayte Heredia, parent center facilitator for Hollingsworth Elementary School.

Tara Crowley, backpack program coordinator, added: “We would love to see every student start school with a new backpack and will be increasing next year’s goal to do just that!”

This is a wonderful program, and we’re pleased to be involved with so many caring people. We hope the kids enjoy their new backpacks. Happy Back to School!
