Walker Furniture, Beasley Media Group and 13 Action News Collect Thousands of New School Supplies for Clark County Students
Clark County
school children return to school this week and with Walker Furniture’s inaugural collaboration with Beasley Media Group and 13 Action News, their “Stuff The Bus” promotion collecting new school supplies for Clark County School District (CCSD) students in need was a huge success. 

It really is true that it takes a community/village to raise a child, and especially in the Las Vegas Valley where according to 2015 figures more than 11,000 thousands students are homeless and need regular school supplies like backpacks, paper, pens, scissor, etc. “Stuff The Bus” provides a way for everyone to give. Not only are students aided by the “Stuff The Bus” promotion, but so are teachers who typically on their own furnish their classrooms with supplies.

Walker Furniture’s first “Stuff The Bus” promotion will now be an annual part of its regular community programs. Two big collections days were held on Saturdays, July 23 and Aug 6, to actually fill a school bus with new school supplies while Beasley Broadcasting radio stations held two-hour live remotes with on-air personalities from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Through Aug. 15, supplies were collected at Walker Furniture, Beasley Media Group and Channel 13. Then all items were brought to Walker Furniture where thousands of items collected from generous community residents were packaged into 29 boxes for the Clark County School District to pick up and properly distribute.

“Walker is genuinely pleased to partner with Beasley Broadcasting and Channel 13 to help the young people in our community,” said Walker Furniture’s CEO, Larry Alterwitz. “It’s so important for students to have the necessary supplies they need and we’re thankful to everyone who participated.”
