Communities In Schools of Nevada Looking to Community for Clothing Drive to Help At-Risk Children

November 4, 2010 by  

Communities In Schools of Nevada is reaching out to Las Vegans to help them with a community wide clothing drive to help them provide cold weather clothing for at-risk students.

Communities In Schools of Nevada is looking for community groups to collect gently used clothes of any size. Through a partnership with Goodwill, Communities In Schools then turns these donations into vouchers for families to use to purchase uniforms and other needed goods at Goodwill stores. It’s easy and fun!

“Many of our families do not have the money to purchase new school uniforms for their children. As the weather turns cold, many of our students are forced to wear short sleeved shirts and shorts which makes it very uncomfortable and difficult to concentrate on class work,” noted State Director, Louise Helton. “If we can provide these families with vouchers to Goodwill, they can purchase appropriate clothing and their children can focus on learning.”

People can drop off bags of used clothing at any Goodwill store location. Just say the donation is for Communities In Schools of Nevada or simply mark your bags with “CIS.”

Goodwill Store Locations:

  • 1280 W Cheyenne Ave.
  • 31 N Nellis Blvd.
  • 9230 S Eastern Ave.
  • 3011 N Rainbow Blvd.
  • 6344 W Sahara Ave.
  • 3345 E Tropicana Ave.
  • 1421 W Warm Springs Rd.
  • 4380 W Craig Rd.
