Silver State Schools Credit Union (SSSCU), a Las Vegas based financial institution, serving its members for over 71 years, and the Silver State Schools CU People Over Profit (POP) Foundation, are announcing its annual Back to School Supply Drive benefiting the youth of Southern Nevada. Working in partnership with the Las Vegas Lights FC, now through Sunday, July 31st, school supplies can be dropped off at Cashman Field during the upcoming Las Vegas Lights home games, or at any of the ten SSSCU branch locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley and Henderson.
Silver State Schools Credit Union and the POP Foundation support educational programs and Southern Nevada nonprofit organizations that primarily work with students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade (PK-12). The school supplies collected will help SSSCU and the POP Foundation fulfill their joint mission to equip Southern Nevada students by providing tools and resources that will benefit them for the upcoming school year.
“We are passionate about helping students in Southern Nevada to obtain the necessary tools they need for their education” says Scott A. Arkills, President and CEO, Silver State Schools Credit Union. “Our members, our staff and our community have always been incredibly generous in donating school supplies that will benefit those in need. We are delighted to partner with the Las Vegas Lights FC to have an additional location where supplies can be collected.”
SSSCU is collecting new or slightly used backpacks, as well as new pencils, pens, notebooks, erasers, rulers, scissors, sticky notes, dry erase markers, or any other school supplies item.
