The Backstreet Boys, Richard Harris Law Firm, Foodie Fit and Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation are working together to ensure the children at Robert E. Lake Elementary School in Las Vegas, NV are “Prepped for School” by providing all their school supplies for the 2018-2019 school year.
The Nevada School Board faces a $60 million shortfall in their budget. Budget cuts have begun and will, no doubt, continue for the foreseeable future. While layoffs are inevitable, schools will first cut spending anywhere they can before letting teachers and other administrators go. This means schools will now have less money for supplies, forcing them to rely more on parents for school supplies. For middle class families this is a burden, but for low-income families who already struggle the load is even heavier. With the average backpack and school supplies running over $300, families have to decide between paying their bills and getting their child ready for the school year. With your help, we want to make sure that every student at Robert E. Lake Elementary is Prepped for School.
