In honor of Juneteenth, the LVNBA Back to School Committee is raising funds to purchase and donate school supplies to an underserved elementary school in our local community. The goal is to raise $500 by July 2, 2020. All donations support the LVNBA's sponsorship of a pallet of school supplies that includes composition notebooks, copy paper, dry erase markers, crayons, colored pencils, antibacterial wipes, tissue, and hand sanitizer.
In these uncertain economic times, many students attending underserved schools do not have the means to purchase supplies for the upcoming school year. Providing school supplies to students in need is consistent with the LVNBA's mission to promote equal opportunity for all people and better equips children to take advantage of the freedoms we celebrate on Juneteenth.
