North Las Vegas Back to School Bash | News
NORTH LAS VEGAS -- Five hundred kids in North Las Vegas now have backpacks and school supplies after a big back-to-school bash.
North Las Vegas Police teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club and Commissioner Lawrence Weekly to offer the supplies for free.
Backpacks were filled with basic items like paper, notebooks, binders, hand sanitizer and more. It was a $25 dollar value.
Local leaders and educators also talked to kids about staying focused in school and avoiding peer pressure.
Tina Cordosa is a mother of seven, who couldn't be more thankful for the school supplies.
Cordosa is struggling to provide for her family, with very little assistance each month.
"That makes it easier on us and it makes us feel good too; that somebody is there to help," Cordosa said.
CCSD urges parents to check with their child's school, before purchasing supplies, as each supply list varies per school.
