IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR! BACK TO SCHOOL!

We’re excited to be running Project Backpack for the 4th year in a row! We’ve given 50,000 backpacks full of school supplies to local students, and we are excited to announce we have expanded Project Backpack throughout Nevada. We’re so happy to help students in our community get ready for a much more normal year of learning and fun! The backpacks are stuffed with awesome gear, so students will be set for an even more awesome school year! We’re so glad to have the chance to give back to the community we love so much.

Our story

Thousands of school children go without backpacks and the essential supplies they need to succeed in school. Wanting to make a difference in Nevada, Richard Harris set out on a mission to get backpacks and school supplies into the hands of some of the neediest schools through his Project Backpack initiative. Through the generous support of local volunteers and the attorneys and staff of Richard Harris Law Firm, Project Backpack will once again have a strong launch at the start of this fall’s school year. This will mark our 4th official year of Project Backpack, and by the end of it, we will have donated over 50,000 backpacks full of supplies to Nevada school kids.

 

 

 

 

 

Richard Harris Law Firm’s 4th Annual Project Backpack Event

These events are for the students who are NOT receiving backpacks at the schools we are supporting in 2024. This year, we are giving backpacks out to only the KINDERGARTEN classes of the listed schools. Students who are in all grade levels (excluding kindergarten) are eligible for attending the in-person event. See below if you or your kindergartener’s school is listed and if they will be receiving a backpack or not.

OUR FOURTH OFFICIAL YEAR OF HELPING AND COUNTING

 

 

 

“The children of Las Vegas deserve better. With the help of my incredible team, I am excited to continue our Project Backpack initiative. My goal is for every child in need to receive a backpack, and we look forward to the lasting impact this initiative will have on the kids and families of our communities.”
~ Richard Harris

“We need to do more for the kids in our community. Every kid deserves to have the supplies they need to succeed in school. Our firm is going to keep giving until every kid in Las Vegas who needs a backpack gets one.”

~Josh Harris
