Nevada REALTORS® are teaming up with Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the state to collect school supplies for students served by the clubs. The summer school supply drive is being organized by the Nevada Association of REALTORS® (NVAR) and its LeadershipNVAR Class of 2017 to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs throughout Nevada.
LeadershipNVAR, NVAR’s signature program for personal and professional growth, is promoting the drive as part of its annual class project. REALTORS® are donating a wide array of school supplies, including backpacks, pencils, erasers, folders, three-ring binders, notebooks, markers, dictionaries, crayons and other school supplies to designated locations around the state. Like last year’s class, LeadershipNVAR is working with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a partner charity for the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
The current LeadershipNVAR class of 15 Nevada REALTORS® includes members from Las Vegas to Minden and from Reno to Elko. Las Vegas REALTOR® Stephanie Dibbs-Mangual, a 2017 LeadershipNVAR class member and project leader, said REALTORS® have a rich history of giving back in their communities, and LeadershipNVAR continues to promote that ideal. “This drive is a big challenge to our leadership class and our REALTOR® friends across the state,” she said. “It will be exciting, too. Our class fully intends to get to work and promote the value of these donations. We want to bring many smiles to the children who thrive in these clubs and the staff that works tirelessly to help kids.”
