The numbers for the second annual Fill The Bus event are in!

In partnership with Communities In Schools of Western Nevada (CIS of Western Nevada), we collected roughly $15,000 worth of school supplies and long with monetary donations, we raised $30,000 in total this year. That's double from last year!

The supply drive was held last Friday at Sam's Club on Kietzke Lane to help address the needs of over 4,400 disadvantaged students K-12.

The supplies will go to eight schools throughout the Washoe County School District to ease the financial burden put on low-income students and their families, as well as WCSD teachers.
